Jacks Season Ends in Extra Inning Loss



EUGENE, Ore. – San Francisco pushed an unearned run across in the top of the 13th inning, ending the South Dakota State baseball team’s season with a 4-3 victory in an elimination game Saturday at the Eugene Regional of the NCAA Tournament. Bradley Zimmer started the game-winning rally for San Francisco by reaching on an error. After Zimmer stole second base, Jackrabbit reliever Shane Kraemer walked the next two batters to load the bases. Chad Hodges came into pitch for SDSU, giving up a sacrifice fly to Bob Cruikshank before inducing a double-play grounder to end the inning. SDSU threatened to again tie the game in the home half of the 13th as Daniel Marra recorded his third hit of the game – a one-out single – and moved to second on a groundout. However, Reid Clary grounded out to second base to end the game. The Jackrabbits, who played their first extra-innings game of the year, ended their season with a 35-24 record.
