Two walks and a single by Iowa Western would load the bases with no out to begin the bottom of the seventh inning. The Reviers’ Quinn Carpenter would connect for a double to give Iowa Western two runs and put runners at second and third with no-out.
After that, the Falcons would call in Jose Marin, who would strike out the next two batters. A wild pitch would plate Iowa Western’s Jason McMurray, making the score 8-6. However, Alex Crowl would flyout to second base, ending the game and giving the Falcons the win.
The Falcons did not fare as well in game nightcap of Saturday’s twin bill. Iowa Western would outscore the Falcons 12-4 to split the first of two doubleheaders. Indian Hills recorded eight errors on defense during the nightcap.
