St. Cloud State’s Ugly Collapse


Well, it’s not over yet but St. Cloud State’s baseball team is trying to avoid one of the uglier losses in recent memory.  The Huskies played the beginning game in a 4 games weekend series yesterday with Missouri Southern State in Joplin, MO.  As I wrote in my series preview (Here) the Lions have a very suspect pitching staff and the Huskies should be able to take advantage of that.  Sure enough, St. Cloud jumped out front to a 9-1 lead after 4 innings and a 13-4 lead after 6 1/2 innings.  In the bottom of the 7th they gave up 9 runs on 6 hits, 2 walks and a HBP.  That tied the game and Missouri Southern took the lead in the bottom of the 8th with a home run to make it 14-13.

Then a funny thing happened.  The game took so long that the umpires had to leave to go to a different contest.  So the game restarts today in the top of the 9th inning and the Huskies have 3 outs left to try and redeem themselves.  Or if that doesn’t work, they have 2 more games right afterward.  St Cloud’s Suspended Game
