UW-La Crosse was three outs away from forcing a third and deciding game against top-ranked SUNY-Cortland at the NCAA Division 3 College World Series today. But Cortland had something else in mind.
Cortland rallied in the 9th for five runs on four hits and pulled out a 6-2 victory in winning the program’s first national title. They finished 45-4 on the season, winning the title in their 13th attempt.
La Crosse was making its first trip to the World Series and finished runner-up.
Joe Miller allowed one run and six hits in 5 1/3 innings for the Eagles. Miller also pitched six innings in La Crosse’s 3-2 win over Emory in 12 innings on Saturday.
