EMMONS &045; It was an impressive comeback by the Glenville-Emmons High School baseball team.

It just fell a little short.

Trailing 7-1 after two innings, the Wolverines rallied for six runs through the next three frames but lost 8-7 to Blooming Prairie in a nonconference game at Emmons Tuesday.

&uot;We dug ourselves a real big hole early in the game and just couldn’t come out of it,&uot; said Wolverines coach Louie Toulouse. &uot;It was a nice comeback, but against a quality opponent like Blooming Prairie you can’t spot them that many runs. They have a real nice team.&uot;

The Blossoms improved to 9-1 while the Wolverines fell to 8-2.

The visitors took advantage of walks in the early going, drawing three bases on balls in a three-run first inning and another in a four-run second.

Paul Kleven took the loss, giving up seven runs &045; all earned – on six hits in 1 1/3 inning. He had four walks and one strikeout.

Alex Hansen led the offense, going 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI. Kleven was 2-for-4 with one RBI. Matt Learn, Mitch Meier, Jay Wadding and Nick Flatness contributed one hit apiece.

The Wolverines travel to Southland for a doubleheader on Thursday.
