GREENVILLE, Ill. - Westminster baseball bowed out of the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament after a walk-off loss to Spalding and a loss to Greenville.
The Blue Jays end the season 17-15 with the two losses.
In the first game of the day, the Blue Jays took Spalding to the bottom of the ninth before falling in walk-off fashion, 3-2.
Mason Kirkweg pitched a complete game, giving up three runs, one earned, on just seven hits.
After the Golden Eagles scored twice in the third inning on a sacrifice fly and Blue Jay throwing error in the same play, Westminster came back to add two in the sixth to tie the game. A Zach Eisenreich leadoff triple resulted in the first run of the day when Beeler put the ball in play to score Eisenreich. Ryan Klimkiewicz added a run in the inning, scoring Will Stonecipher, who reached on a wild pitch and advanced on a Hayden Hirschvogel single.
Spalding walked the game off in the bottom of the ninth with a bases-loaded single, forcing Westminster to an immediate elimination game against Greenville.
The game was all Greeville through eight innings, with the Panthers earning an 8-0 lead.
Westminster got in the board to stage a ninth-inning rally with a Klimkiewicz RBI and a bases-loaded hit-by-pitch RBI from Drew Bax, but it wasn't enough to keep Westminster in the tournament.
