The Union Knights closed out their regular season with a 10-8 victory over Sumner-Fredericksburg, their ninth overall against 19 defeats. Much of the damage on offense for Union was done in the third and fifth innings. It was a five run third inning that staked the Knights to an early 6-1 advantage.
After a pair of two run innings for Sumner-Fredericksburg cut the Union lead to 6-5, the Knights responded in the top of the fifth with a four run outburst to push the lead back to five, 10-5 in Union’s favor. Sumner-Fredericksburg answered with three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, but 10-8 was as close as the score would get.
