Boone’s bats were cooled off for three innings while Kuemper played catch and scored another run in the sixth, cutting down the Boone lead to 8-6. Kuemper’s big inning came in the seventh when they rattled off six runs and took the lead for the first time at 12-8. Kaylie Diercksen had the lone hit for the Knights in the seventh as most of the baserunners got on the bags due to walks, errors, and fielder’s choice. With a four run lead, Kuemper had to keep Boone at bay in the bottom half of the inning to secure a win. The Toreadors got back to back base hits to get two runners on and a sac hit got one runner home. An error at first base allowed another runner to score for Boone then a blooper to right field scored a third runner, cutting down the Kuemper lead to 12-11. The Kuemper defense was able to pump the breaks and tag runners out at home and at third base to stop the Toreadors’ chance to win, giving them the 12-11 win.
The win will elevate the Knights to 10-12 overall on the season. They return to action on Monday, June 20th with a home game against Shenandoah.
