E-LC Rallies For Late Inning Baseball Win Over Sheldon

Estherville Lincoln Central scored two runs in the top of the seventh as they knocked off the Orabs 8-7 in Sheldon Friday night.

The Orabs took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first as Trevor Johnson took one out of the park to straight away left to score Brandon Frick who had singled in front of him.

The Midgets took a 3-2 lead as they put a trio of runs on the board with a pair of rbi singles and a sac fly in the top of the second.

Sheldon answered with a pair of runs in the home half of the inning when Jake Rosberg reached on an error and later scored on an error. Cody Hatting followed Rosberg with a walk and scored on a single by Frick and Sheldon was back in front 4-3.

Sheldon made it 7-3 with a three run third inning highlighted by a two run homer to left center by Joe Kuiper that scored Mitchell Jensen. Earlier in the inning Graden Nordahl had doubled to left and came in to score on a single to left by Jensen.

Estherville Lincoln Central made use of a pair of Sheldon errors to score three runs on two hits in the top of the fourth as they pulled to within a run at 7-6. The two teams played scoreless ball until the top of the seventh when the Midgets rallied with a pair of runs to win it 8-7.

Mitchell Jensen went the first six innings and was tagged with the loss. He scattered eight hits and walked two. Cody Hatting came on the two men on base and no one out in the seventh inning.

Tyler Swanson went the first six innings for the win. He gave up six hits and walked two.

With the win Estherville Lincoln Central improves to 5-9 for the year while Sheldon slips to 5-9 for the season. The Orabs saw a three game winning streak come to an end. Following the weekend off Sheldon returns to the diamond on Monday night playing host to George Little Rock.
