Owatonna Baseball Rallies From Behind for Win at New Prague
For the third time this week Owatonna baseball scored a come-from-behind win, topping New Prague 4-3 for their fourth straight victory.
The Trojans grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning at Memorial Field in New Prague. The Huskies responded with a five-hit, three-run inning in the third. Nolan Malo led off the inning with a single, advanced to second on a balk and scored on Noah Budach's double. Zach Mensink also added a run-scoring double in the frame. Another run scored on a ball that got past the catcher. The ballpark has an enormous area behind the plate.
New Prague pulled even at 3-3 with two runs in the fourth. Again the Huskies responded quickly. Kodey Kiel led off the fifth with a single, stole second and third and scored on Brady Schuster's sacrifice fly for the final margin of 4-3.
Kiel pitched four innings, allowing two runs and striking out five. Abe Havelka threw the final three innings and fanned four batters, including striking out the side in the fifth. Budach turned a double play in the sixth to snuff out a Trojans threat.
Owatonna also rallied from behind against Mankato West and Faribault this week. The Huskies host No. 1 from Class 4A Minnetonka on Monday at 5PM at Fuller Field.
Huskies softball lost to Rochester JM 12-10 under the lights at Morehouse Park on Friday. Ellie Rohman had two hits and drove in three runs. OHS girls lacrosse beat Northfield 17-4.
