The Lastrup Lakers are headed to the Class C State Tournament following a thrilling 8-7 win over the Nisswa Lightning in 12 innings at the Region 8C Tournament in Upsala on Saturday.  The Lakers scored first, plating 2 runs in the top of the 2nd on a Nisswa error and a run-scoring ground-out by Reese Kapsner.  In the top of the 3rd, Paul Herman led off with a double, moved to 3rd on a bunt by Brad Meyer, and scored on Peter Herman's rbi single to make it 3-0.  The Lakers made it 4-0 in the top of the 4th when Dan Saehr belted a lead-off Homer off the top rail of the left field fence and over the wall.  In the bottom of the 4th, momentum took a 180 degree turn as the Lightning scored 4 times to tie the game.  Jason Roepke and Morgan Shepherd belted 2-run Homers to tie the game at 4-4 after 4 innings.  In the top of the 5th, Lightning right-hander Kevin SMith, who had relieved Scott Sand after Saehr's Homer in the 4th, gave up rbi singles to Preston Rocheleau and Reese Kapsner to put Lastrup back in front 6-4.  Preston Rocheleau was then called upon to take over the pitching duties from Chad Weiss to begin the bottom of the 5th.  Rocheleau did his job, shutting out the Lightning going to the bottom of the 9th.  With the Lakers up 6-4 and the Lightning down to their final at-bat, it was a familiar spot for Nisswa.  They faced elimination last Sunday against Avon and faced a much bigger deficit, needing a 5-run comeback to beat Avon 6-5.  In that game, Jason Roepke had drilled a 3-run double to complete the comeback.  With 1 out in the bottom of the 9th, Chris Pederson singled, followed by a walk to Brett Jenkins.  Drew Boland then singled to right to fill the bases.  Rocheleau got Jeremiah Piepkorn to pop out to shortstop for the 2nd out.  That brought up Jason Roepke, who once again delivered in crunch time.  Roepke ripped a 2-run single to tie the game at 6-6 before Rocheleau got a ground ball force out to end the 9th.  Brett Jenkins had taken over from Kevin Smith back in the 6th and had blanked Lastrup up to this point.  Jenkins issued a 2-out walk to Chad Weiss but then got Paul Herman to line out to 2nd baseman Jeremiah Piepkorn to end the top of the 10th.  In the bottom of the 10th, Lastrup center fielder Reese Kapsner made a head-first diving catch to rob Morgan Shepherd of an extra base hit then a pop out to 2nd was followed by a walk to Chris Pederson.  With 2 outs, Pederson was thrown out attempting to steal by Lakers catcher Reggie Litke to send the game to the 11th.  Brett Jenkins mowed through the Lastrup order on just 9 pitches in the top of the 11th to give Nisswa another opportunity to win the game in their final at-bat.  In the bottom of the 11th, Brett Jenkins was hit in the helmet by a Rocheleau pitch to begin the inning, putting the potential winning run on base.  That brought up Drew Boland.  Lastrup 3rd baseman Peter Herman had a hunch that Boland was going to attempt to bunt to get Jenkins to 2nd.  Herman was right and when Boland's bunt was popped up towards 3rd, Herman had raced in and made a sliding catch to retire Boland and before Herman rose to his feet, he made a perfect throw to to 1st baseman Dan Saehr to double off Jenkins.  Jeremiah Piepkorn then singled, bringing up Jason Roepke in another huge moment.  Roepke put a good swing on the Rocheleau offering but his fly ball to deep center stayed in the park with Reese Kapsner making the catch to end the inning still tied at 6-6.  In the top of the 12th, Jason Sadlovsky led off by reaching on an error.  Dan Saehr then was called out when his bunt was ruled to have hit him when he was out of the batters box, sending Sadlovsky back to 1st with 1 out.  Brett Jenkins then flew out to right field for out #2.  Reese Kapsner then stroked a double down the right field line and the Lakers had men at 2nd and 3rd with 2 outs.  Nisswa opted to intentionally walk Chad Weiss to load the bases.  Paul Herman then delivered a 2-run single to score both Sadlovsky and Kapsner to make it 8-6 before the inning ended on a pop out to shortstop.  Once again trailing by 2 and down to their final 3 outs of the season, Rocheleau got the first batter to pop out to 2nd but then surrendered a solo Homer to Adam Hardy to make it 8-7.  Rocheleau got Morgan Shepherd to fly to left for the second out.  Tory Miller kept the Lightning hopes alive with a 2-out single to bring the potential winning run to the plate in Chris Pederson.  Pederson hit the first pitch he saw from Rocheleau into shallow right field where Scott Janson came sprinting in and in an all-out headfirst dive made the catch to end the game and clinch the 8-7 win for Lastrup, sending them to the State Tournament.  It was the only putout for Janson the entire game.  Lastrup has now won 2 Region Tournament games this year in extra-innings, beating Fort Ripley 3-2 in 14 last Saturday, and then eliminating Nisswa 8-7 in 12 this week.
