The Lastrup Lakers edged the Fort Ripley Rebels 5-4 on Sunday in Upsala in another exciting game between the two teams.  The Lakers had beaten the Rebels 3-2 in 14 innings in the Tournament's first round last week in Pierz and this game looked like it might go to extra innings again as the game was tied 4-4 going to the 9th, but Lastrup got a run in the final inning to win.  In order to qualify for State on Saturday, the Lakers used both Chad Weiss and Preston Rocheleau extensively on the mound, so on Sunday they handed the ball to their draftee, Peter Schommer from the Pierz Bulldogs.  The Junior-to-be at Pierz High School gave the Lakers a great effort, effectively mixing his curve, change-up and fastball to keep Rebels hitters off balance as Schommer pitched 6 full innings against a very good hitting Rebels offense.  Fort Ripley used both Ethan Branum and Logan Kalis on the hill on Saturday in their State qualifying win over Upsala, so they gave the starting assignment to Luke Weber.  The game was scoreless headed to the bottom of the 3rd when Luke Weber singled with 1 out.  He went to 2nd on a wild pitch, advanced to 3rd on a fly out to right and then scored on a wild pitch to give the Rebels a 1-0 lead after 3.  In the to of the 4th, Paul Herman led off with a double to deep center and the Lakers tied things up on a hard-hit 2-out rbi single by Jason Sadlovsky. It remained tied 1-1 heading into the top of the 6th.  That inning began with a Reggie Litke single to center, then Jason Sadlovsky reached on a bunt single.  Preston Rocheleau's sacrifice bunt moved both men into scoring position.  Scott Janson then gave Lastrup the lead with a sacrifice fly to center and the Lakers led 2-1.  The Lakers weren't done scoring though in the 6th as Nate Janson then smashed his first career Victory League Homer over the fence in left to make it 4-1.  It was Nate Janson that had delivered the 14th inning game-winning hit the previous week against the Rebels.  Fort Ripley had a quick answer in the bottom of the 6th.  Rhett Williamson singled with 1 out, followed by Logan Kalis getting hit by a pitch.  After Peter Schommer got a strikeout, Zach Heidmann cracked a 2-run double to make it 4-3.  Jason Sather then walked and the Rebels had the potential go-ahead run on 1st.  Schommer got out of the inning with a pop out to 3rd as Lastrup led 4-3 after 6.  Mac Brink took over from Weber to pitch the top of the 7th for the Rebels and worked an effective 1-2-3 inning.  In the bottom of the 7th, Schommer issued a 4-pitch walk to Bill Sather and the prompted a pitching change for Lastrup, as they brought in veteran reliever Reggie Litke. He had earned the win with 3 innings of relief in the 14 inning game.  Brian Skluzacek sacrificed Sather to 2nd with a bunt, and then Sather moved to 3rd on a grounder to 1st by Nick Jelacie.  Rhett Williamson then doubled for the second time in the game and Sather scored the tying run and it was 4-4 after 7.  In the top of the 8th, Brink once again retired Lastrup in order.  In the bottom of the 8th, Litke allowed a 2-out single to Jason Sather but then got a called 3rd strike to send the game to the 9th.  Brett Kramer took over from Mac Brink to pitch the top of the 9th for the Rebels.  With a count of 1-2, Kramer hit Nate Janson with a pitch to put him on base.  Reese Kapsner's bunt moved Janson to 2nd with 1 out.  Paul Herman followed with a ground ball up the middle, and Janson was able to safely reach 3rd as Herman was thrown out for the second out of the inning.  That brought up Brad Meyer, who bounced an infield single to the left side to score Janson the the go-ahead run.  After Meyer then stole second, Peter Herman singled to right, and Meyer was thrown out at home trying to score to end the inning with Lastrup ahead 5-4.  In the bottom of the 9th, Reggie Litke got the first out on a line drive to 2nd baseman Paul Herman off the bat of Bill Sather.  Brian Skluzacek then doubled into the left field corner to get the potential winning run to the plate with 1 out.  Nick Jelacie singled to center and Skluzacek was sent home but Nate Janson unleashed a perfect throw to the plate to just get Skluzacek for the 2nd out of the inning, with Jelacie advancing to 2nd on the play.  Litke now faced Rhett Williamson with the tying run at 2nd and 2 outs.  Rhett had already gone 3-4 with 2 doubles in the game, but Litke got him to pop out back to the mound, and Litke made the catch to end the game with a 5-4 Lastrup win.  Fort Ripley became the #4 seed at State for Region 8C with the result of the game.  Lastrup then turned around and faced their East Division rival Buckman in a 4:00 pm game.
