Eagles take first loss of season in extras

Colton Clarahan threw the final three innings for the Eagles, holding

Sigourney to one hit and struck out five. Keota led early on but would end up taking a 4-3 loss in 10 innings of play. 

Keota had runs score early, but their chances were limited. The Eagles’ runs were matched by Sigourney, and though Keota led by as many as two after 3 ½ innings, Sigourney responded to tie it back up 3-3. They would end up playing extra innings with Sigourney winning it 4-3.

Austin Waterhouse pitched through six innings, allowed four hits with one charged run and struck out five. Keota turned to their freshman reliever Colton Clarahan to finish it out, pitching the next three innings, allowing one hit, one run, one walk and struck out five.

The score would remain tied 3-3 heading into the ninth inning, and Keota would get on board with a walk and get as close as second base off a wild pitch but would not score. Clarahan would remain dominant on the mound. Dustin Haines was able to beat out a throw to first and would end up getting to third base but would be stranded after Clarahan induced an inning-ending strikeout.
