Owatonna Legion baseball coach Tate Cummins encouraged his team in the bottom of the seventh with something to the affect of "there's still plenty of game to go."  Post 77 entered the last frame down 11-3 to the Rochester Patriots Post 92. Owatonna rallied for five runs before running out of outs in an 11-8 loss, snapping their three-game winning streak.

After a strike out to begin their last chance at bat, six straight reached base. Payton Neumann singled. Mitch Seykora was hit by a pitch, as was Joey Dub. Jack Helget singled to short right field to drive in a run. Payton Beyer hit an infield single to score another one. Taylor Bogen hit a two-run single. Matt Seykora lifted a fly ball to center for a sac fly that brought Owatonna within 11-8. That's where the rally ended.

Owatonna actually outhit Rochester 11-8, but stranded 11 base runners, at least one every inning. Post 77 pitchers walked nine Rochester batters. Eight of them scored. Post 92 also got a three-run home run in the third inning after two walks.

Next up is a road game at Byron Thursday. Matt Seykora and Beyer are members of the south roster for the all-star series Friday, June 25 and Saturday, June 26 at Chaska.

The moon over the outfield was pretty cool to see, though the picture accompanying this post doesn't do it justice. Did you know a strawberry moon will be seen in Owatonna Thursday, June 24?
