#13 Baseball Sweeps South in Dramatic Fashion

The 2015 Louisville Leopards Varsity Baseball team swept the Canton South Wildcats for the first time since 2010. Both victories required an extra frame as the Leopards defeated the Wildcats 7-6 in 8 innings at home on April 21, 2015 and then 8-7 at Canton South also in 8 innings on April 23, 2015.

In the first contest, the Leopards rallied from a 4-2 deficit with a 4-run fourth inning. Brock Haren
Beatty's Camo Hat 2 - 2015delivered a 2-run single to tie the game. Then with two outs, Joe Crank dived head-first into first base to earn an infield single that allowed Reis Rankin to score. On the next play, Haren stole home after Crank got into a rundown between first and second.

Canton South tied the game back up at 6-6 with two runs in the top of the fifth. The Wildcats threatened again in the seventh loading the bases with two outs, but a fly out to right ended the threat.

In the bottom of the eight, Louisville loaded the bases and Haren blasted a walk-off single that hit chalk down the left field line. The game-winner brought home Adam Nyland from third sending the Leopards into a frenzy and a mobbing at first base.

The Leopards again rallied to beat the Wildcats in their second meeting. Trailing 7-5 in the top of the sixth, Jake Adams and Alex Hewitt each provided RBI singles to knot the game at 7-7.

The go-ahead run came in the top of the eight when Adams hit a bases loaded sacrifice fly to score Haren from third. Nyland preserved the 8-7 Louisville lead with a 1-2-3 bottom of the eighth to take the game.

The Leopards (10-4) would end up finishing third in the NBC behind Outright Champion West Branch (12-2) and Canton South (11-3). However, the sweep of South put them into position for a chance to win the league during the final week of the season. Louisville rebounded from a losing season in 2014 (9-14) to finish 17-12 overall for the 2015 campaign and planting a seed of future success for the Leopards Baseball program.
