Eagles come back to win in extra innings

Posted: Updated:
UW-La Crosse had to play a marathon 13 innings before coming away with an 8-6 victory over Washington University Friday morning.

Weather Thursday night led to the suspension of the game in the second inning with the Bears leading the Eagles 6-5.


Friday morning, when the game resumed, the Eagles finally tied the game in the ninth off when Taylor Kohlwey hit a double down the right field line then scored on Justin Anderson's single to center.

The game remained knotted at 6-all until the 13th inning. Alex Cordova smacked a triple with one out. Kohlwey was then intentionally walked to put runners at the corners. Cordova scored on a safety squeeze by pinch hitter Seth Feldman to make it 7-6 Eagles. Kohlwey was thrown out at the plate trying to score on a single by Ben Morgan. Bryce Barsness hit a single to left to score pinch runner Alex Brown to make it 8-6.


Washington did get a runner on base in their half of the 13th, but couldn't push any runs across home.


UW-L now faces Coe College Friday night.

WXOW will have highlights of the game on the 10pm Sports Report with Scott Emerich.
