Winona knocked SCSU starter Nick Anderson out of the game in the second inning as they held a 5-2 lead.

With the bases loaded, Husky pitcher Ryne Schwenke walked in the winning run and the season was over for SCSU. It was a tough finish at 1:30 a.m. Monday morning for the Huskies.
The loss ends a historic season for St. Cloud State. The Huskies set a team record for wins as they finished with a record of 43 wins and 11 losses.
