PREP BASEBALL

Indian Creek scores two in bottom of seventh for tie: Tyler Swanson hit a sacrifice fly and Drew Gaston scored on an error to tie the score as the Timberwolves tied Earlville-Leland, 8-8.

The game only will be finished if it affects the Little Ten Conference standings.

The Timberwolves (3-8-1) pounded out 11 hits, including a 3-for-4 game for Cooper Larsen. Larsen hit a home run and drove in three. R.J. McCoy, Griffin Rissman and Ethan Johanningsmeier each had two hits.

Indian Creek led, 6-4, after five on Larsen’s three-run blast, which put the team back on top.
