MVAOCOU at IKM-Manning
Cooper Perdew was able to give the IKM-Manning Wolves another walk-off win as they got past MVAOCOU Wednesday.
The Rams were the ones with the early lead as they got two runners across home plate while the Wolves only got one.

In the bottom half of the fourth inning, the Wolves added three runs to their total and took the lead at 4-3. That lead was extended further in the sixth inning to 6-3 thanks to more great hitting from the Wolves’ offense. Max Nielsen and Cooper Perdew had solid nights with Nielsen going 2-4 with two RBI and Perdew going 2-4 with one RBI.
The Wolves saw some setbacks in the seventh inning when they gave up three unearned runs off walks and errors that led to a tied game at 6-6. Without an answer in the bottom of the seventh, the Rams and Wolves went to extra innings to determine the winner. MVAOCOU had a chance to recapture the lead with runners at third and second in the eighth inning, but a deep ball to left field was caught for out number three that spoiled their chance.

Lane Sams grounded out to get Summerfield to second base while Max Nielsen was intentionally walked, giving IKM-Manning two baserunners. Cooper Perdew was able to knock a single that brought Summerfield home to give him another game where he got the game-winning hit and claimed victory for the Wolves by a score of 7-6 in eight innings.
