GRAND CHUTE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The tables were turned on the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The Pointers are 9-2 in the ongoing NCAA Division III baseball tournament, rallying from behind five times - but top-seeded Linfield rallied to come from behind Sunday.
The Wildcats trailed Stevens Point 3-0 going into the bottom of the seventh inning, but then scored twice in the bottom of the seventh and three more times in the bottom of the eighth to move on in the winners’ bracket of the double-elimination tournament.
The Pointers play at noon today against Southern Maine in an elimination game. Freshman Ben Messenger had Linfield blanked through six innings, but he was knocked out in the Wildcat rally. Relief star Tyler Flood came on to take the loss.
