Pointers rally late again for second World Series win, Dan Douglas sets career record in hits


The Pointers will take on Linfield College, which is also undefeated in this World Series, Sunday, May 26 at 7 p.m.

Just one day after overcoming a 5-0 deficit in the eighth inning to beat Manchester University 6-5, the Pointers found themselves trailing Kean 3-1 in the eighth inning.

Casey Barnes (Mequon, WI/Homestead) led off the top of the eighth inning with an infield single, but was thrown out at second when Riley Spetz (Sevastopol, WI/Sevastopol) reached on a fielder's choice. Spetz advanced to second on a wild pitch and moved to third base when Bobby Gregorich (Plover, WI/SPASH) singled.

Bryton Guckenberg (Trego, MT/Lincoln County), who hit a walk-off home run against Manchester Friday night, reached on a throwing error by the Cougars' pitcher, which allowed Spetz to score and brought the Pointers to within a run, 3-2.

Both Gregorich and Guckenberg advanced one base on a wild pitch, and Dan Douglas (East Troy, WI/East Troy) smacked a single up the middle to bring both runners to the plate and give UWSP a 4-3 lead.

Luke Watson (Appleton, WI/Xavier) earned the win by throwing two innings out of the bullpen in relief of starting pitcher JP Feyereisen (River Falls, WI/River Falls).

Douglas entered the game with 243 career hits in a Pointers uniform, tied with Jake Frombach for the most in program history. The UWSP starting shortstop broke Frombach's six-year old record with a bunt single to lead off the third inning.
