SPASH baseball falls in D1 title game Submitted: 06/13/2013
APPLETON - It was a wild finish in Thursday night's state baseball tournament. In the Division One championship, SPASH faced Sun Prairie.

SPASH trailed 4-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning with 2 outs. However they had two runners on base when Point batter Mitch Mallek was hit by a pitch.

Initially, the umpire ruled the batter didn't get out of the way. After talking to his crew, the umpire reversed the call and awarded first base.

That loaded the bases for Sterling King. He hit a 2-run single to tie the game and send it to extra innings.
But in the eighth inning, Sun Prairie's Connor Funnell hit an RBI-double. It proved to be the winning run.

SPASH fell 5-4 in 8 innings.
