CUW barely beat both the darkness and MSOE, scoring the winning run with two down in the 11th (about 7pm) to earn their first NAC win last night on the saturated Concordia diamond.
The Falcons (5-9) took a 4-0 lead in the first inning on hits by Ryan Schilter, Derrick Pankow, Dan Shea, and Harry Steldt, but the Raiders (3-12) came back with 3 of their own in the top of the second against Brent Behling... and a see-saw battle ensued.
MSOE actually led 7-6 before Val Keiper's team drew even in the 8th when Matt Schilter singled and came all the way around on an MSOE throwing error.
With two down in the Falcon 11th, Ryan Schilter singled and stole second. Derrick Pankow walked and Dan Shea was hit by a pitch to load the bases before Adam Martz' unplayable infield dribbler scored the game-winner.
Concordia pitchers Ryan Baglow, Glen Meyerhofer, and winner
Pankow combined for 6 2/3 innings of scoreless relief.
