Marian falls to Glenn; shares NIC title with Penn
MISHAWAKA, Ind. (WNDU) - The Marian Knights baseball team had an opportunity to win the Northern Indiana Conference outright on Monday night.
However, the Knights lost at home to the John Glenn in extras, falling to the Falcons 2-1 after an error at second base in the top of the eighth inning allowed the go-ahead run to score.
The Knights had a chance to tie things back up in the bottom of the eighth with a runner on base. But they were unable to capitalize, as the game ended on a called third strike.
With Marian’s loss and Penn’s win over New Prairie, the two Knights and the Kingsmen will share this year’s NIC title. Both teams finished the season with a 9-2 record in conference play.
Sectionals begin next Wednesday, May 24.
