Game 3 today at 2pm - NS #2

At Southwest Baseball Park, Clark experienced what they haven’t experienced in 52 days – a loss, falling to the Dragons in extra innings.   The Dragons went up 2-0 at the end of the 4th inning.    Clark came out in the 5th inning and scored 3 runs – Jason Cervantes (single), Hunter McFall (fielders choice) and Braden Mattson (single) and pitcher Trevor Settles was able to hold Southwest so the inning ended Clark 3, Southwest 2.

Southwest tied the game up in the bottom of the 6th inning.  In the top of the 7th inning, Mattson homered over left center field, giving Clark the lead.  Chad Dullnig followed with a double, but was stranded on 2nd base when the next 2 batters grounded out.  Southwest came back to score in the bottom of the 7th to put the game into extra innings.  

Southwest held the Cougars in the top of the 8th inning, with 3 quick outs.  Clark walked the first 2 Southwest batters.  When the lead runner tried to steal 3rd, Mattson threw to Chris Werland to get the out.  A double from Southwest put runners at 2nd and 3rd with one out.  To try to force a double play, the next batter was intentionally walked to load the bases.  On a 2 ball, 2 strike count, Southwest singled to score the runner at 3rd and win the game, setting up a game three showdown.

On the mound for Clark was Trevor Settles who pitched 6 innings, giving up 3 runs.  Matt Cohen pitched in relief in the 7th inning and allowed one run.  Ryan Skowronski and John Henderson both pitched in the 8th inning.

Clark will face Southwest in the third – and final elimination game – today at 2pm at NS#2.   Come join our “pre-prom” celebration at NS as we cheer the boys on to the next round of the play offs!
