PRIDE MAKE A RUN THROUGH THE LOSERS BRACKET BUT FALL IN CHAMPIONSHIP GAME TO KELLOGG!
The Pride extended their season Sunday afternoon by knocking out Vincennes University 5-2 in the losers bracket final. Jacob Robinson turned in his best performance of the year on the mound allowing only two runs in 6 2/3 innings. With two outs, two strikes and a runner on first, Robinson injured his thumb on a slow roller base hit to 3rd base. He was forced to leave the game and Jordan Russell came in to close the door. Russell struck out Kotter to end the game and pick up his Sinclair Baseball record 10th save of the season. Top Offensive Performers: Dan Marsh 2-3 3B, John Lydic 1-2 RBI.
For the first time in school history the Tartan Pride reached the Regional Final and found themsleves taking on Kellogg for the 2nd time in the tournament. With a bunch of tired arms (Six games in three days) the Pride battled and played their hearts out only to fall 10-4. Kellogg will represent Region 12 in the World Series in two weeks. Three Sinclair players made the All-Tournament team this year: Jacob Robinson, Dan Marsh, and Clay Ragland.
The Pride finished the season at 36-12 and OCCAC Conference Champions.
