Falcon drop non-conference tilt to St. Norbert 8-4
"It was one of those nights," offered head coach Val Keiper who had watched his Falcons hit 8 separate line drives directly into the gloves of Green Knight infielders. "We had a lot of 'at'em' balls but that's part of the game and you'd rather have those in non- conference play."
Concordia (17-11 overall) still managed 11 hits, three each by Adam Martz and Ryan Schilter, but St. Norbert used a 6 run 4th to secure the victory.
CUW's Ryan Baglow was tagged for all 6 of those runs in relief of Cory Stark who pitched a trio of shutout frames.
Veiper's team will have a huge weekend, traveling to Edgewood for a Saturday twin bill, hosting WLC for a pair of games in West Bend on Sunday, and playing another doubleheader in Watertown against Maranatha on Monday. "Those six games will determine our tournament status," explained Keiper.
CUW currently is in second position in the conference, boasting an 11-3 mark that is second only to Rockford's 13-3 record.
