The Archers are now 23-23 on the season and wrap up regular season play with a four game weekend set at North Central Missouri on Saturday and Sunday.
The Archers found themselves trailing 4-3 heading into the bottom of the seventh inning and with two outs, but Jack Kane produced a cluth two out double to score Jackson Boschert from second to tie the game and push extra innings. Austin DesRoche held the Raiders off the board in two innings of relief to allow for the heroics for Freshman Tony Rask, who singled to left scoring Jeff Huser who doubled with one out, to give the Archers a walk off winner in the opener. DesRoche improves to 2-0 on the season. Huser and Rask each collected two hits for STLCC, while DesRoche and Stephens also added doubles.
