The Luther College baseball season came to an end tonight as the Norse were eliminated from the Iowa Conference Tournament by Coe College by a final of 8-6. Both teams tallied 11 hits but five Norse errors led to four unearned runs for the Kohawks.
Trailing 8-2 heading in to the bottom of the ninth, Luther made things a bit interesting scoring four times. Joe Silversmith, Bryce Hingst and Jake Halverson all had multiple hits. Silversmith and Hingsts were both 2-for-5 and Halverson went 3-for-4. Silversmith drove in a team best two runs. Silversmith also pitched the first four innings and was credited with the loss.
Luther ends its season with an overall record of 27-17.
