McMINNVILLE, Ore. – The Illinois Wesleyan baseball team was stung by two runs in the eighth inning in a 3-2 come-from-behind win by LeTourneau, eliminating the Titans from the NCAA Division III Regional at McMinnville, Ore., on Thursday, May 15.

The Titans’ season ends with a 24-20 record while the Yellowjackets advance to play Friday with a 32-14 record.

Illinois Wesleyan, which left 10 men on base in the game, jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning with three straight hits – junior Tim Coonan led off with a single up the middle and scored when senior centerfielder Jon Frericks tripled down the leftfield line. Frericks scored when senior leftfielder Bobby Czarnowski singled to center field.

LeTourneau scored an unearned run in the last of the sixth as Dillon Yates singled up the middle and, with one out, Caleb Pritchett reached on an error by IWU shortstop Derek Idstein, sending Yates to second. Ryan Garza delivered a single to left center to score Yates with the unearned run.

The Yellowjackets scored two in the eighth as Yates singled to left field and David Perkins singled to left center. Both baserunners moved up a base on a throwing error by IWU junior starter John Munyon on a pickoff attempt at second base. After Pritchett struck out swinging, freshman Louis Acklin relieved Munyon. Garza then executed a squeeze bunt that brought home the tying run and what proved to be the winning run scored when Garza collided with first baseman Nick Hahn after the bunt.

Munyon (3-2) went 7 1/3 innings and allowed eight hits with three walks and four strikeouts. Acklin pitched the final 2/3 of the game.
