Delgado failed to capitalize on a 9th-inning rally, falling 8-6 to Baton Rouge Community College in Saturday’s Miss-Lou Conference matchup at Kirsch-Rooney Stadium.
Down 8-4 at the start of the inning, Daniel Brockhoeft singled and Chad Gough-Fortenberry doubled to jumpstart the late rally. Alex Prestenbach’s RBI-single scored Brockhoeft, improving the score the 8-5. With the tying run on first base with no outs, Angelo Bruno grounded into a double play, scoring Prestenbach before Matt Smith flew out to rightfield to end the game with the Dolphins still trailing by two. Delgado had squashed Baton Rouge’s early 3-0 lead in the bottom of the 2nd inning with Kevin Williams’ RBI-single and Daniel Brockhoeft’s three-run homerun. Nate Fury picked up his first loss of the season in relief of starter Stone Speer.
With the loss, Delgado falls to 25-6 and 1-2 in Miss-Lou conference play. The Dolphins will host McHenry County College in a 5:00 p.m. doubleheader on Monday night at Kirsch-Rooney.
