Amateur Baseball: Willmar comes up short against Milroy

MILROY -- Willmar's late comeback bid was thwarted and the Rails fell to Milroy 4-3 in a Cornbelt League amateur baseball game Sunday.

Milroy took a 4-2 lead in the last of the eighth inning when Scott LaVoy doubled off relief pitcher Jason Brower and scored on Justin Holmgren's pinch-hit single.

Willmar loaded the bases in the top of the ninth inning with one out on a single by Jordan Olson, an error and a walk. Zach Horning's sacrifice scored Olson to make it 4-3, but Nathan Deutz got the final out.

Deutz scattered seven hits, while walking three and striking out seven.
