The Bulldogs,who had beaten the Lakers 10-8 in 13 innings in the 1st round last week, scored 2 runs in the top of the 1st to up early.  The Lakers came back with 1 in the bottom of the 1st and then another in the bottom of the 3rd to tie it at 2-2.  The Bulldogs took a 4-2 lead with a 2-run top of the 7th.  In the bottom of the inning, the Lakers scored 1 run to make it 4-3 and had a runner at 2nd when a wild pitch bounced into a dugout, out of play.  The Lakers runner at 2nd was awarded not only 3rd base by the umpires, but Home as well, tying the game at 4-4.  Bulldogs Manager Andy Leidenfrost then appealed that ruling, saying the runner should only have been awarded 3rd base.  Leidenfrost and the Bulldogs then officially played the remainder of the game under protest.  Play continued with the game still tied 4-4 on the scoreboard.  And once again, a regulation 9 innings wasn't enough for these two rivals.  After the Bulldogs failed to score in the to of the 10th, the Lakers were able to get an rbi single from Luke Girtz in the bottom of the 10th to temporarily end the game with the Lakers winning 5-4.  But now the Bulldogs protest had to be dealt with.  After consulting with the Victory League front office and the Central Minnesota Umpires Association, the Bulldogs protest was upheld and the game's final score was wiped out and the game reverted back to the bottom of the 7th with the Bulldogs leading 4-3.  The Lakers were unable to get that tying run home again in the 7th, and also had another golden chance to score in the 8th, but both times, they were denied and the game went to the 9th with the Bulldogs still up 4-3.  In the 9th, the Bulldogs got a 2-out, 2-run double by Austin Dickmann and an rbi single by Logan Meyer to take a 7-3 and put them just 3 outs from their 1st Region 8C Tournament appearance since 2015.  The Lakers got their first two batters on base with walks, prompting a Bulldogs pitching change.  Logan Meyer came on in relief and got a quick strikeout and then a fly out to left.  A pop up to shortstop then finished off the crazy game with a 7-3 Bulldogs win.  The loss ends the season for the Lakers and snaps their 12 year string of making the Region 8C Tournament.  The last year the Lakers didn't make the field of 8 was 2006 when the Buckman Billygoats and the Pierz Brewers represented the East.  The Bulldogs now head back to Buckman on Sunday to play the Billygoats for the East Division Championship.  First pitch in Buckman is scheduled for 1:00 pm, with a 2nd game if necessary at around 4:00 pm.
