Baseball Team Sees Late Lead Vanish in Loss to Aquinas

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Box Score

By Chaz Amidon

GRAND RAPIDS—Jockeying for position in the MIAA, the Knights have their sights set on Olivet and Adrian—not Aquinas, their cross-town rival in the WHAC. 

And even though Tuesday’s loss to the Saints didn’t affect Calvin’s hunt for the league title, it felt like it.

The Knights squandered a 4-1 lead and gave up a nine-run eighth inning to the Saints, who, after beating Calvin 5-3 in last year’s meeting at Fifth-Third Ballpark, notched a 10-4 win at Calvin Field.
