A spectacular season for the Marietta College Pioneers came to a disappointing end Sunday afternoon in the Division III regional tournament at Don and Sue Schaly Stadium at Pioneer Park.
The Pioneers opened the day by rallying from three runs down late to down Penn State Behrend 7-3 to advance to the evenings championship game against top-seeded Rowan.
Marietta also managed a late rally against the Profs but were unable to finish in the second game of the day as Rowan came up with a 9-8 win in 10 innings to advance to DIII College World Series.
The Pioneers found themselves trailing 3-0 heading to the last of the sixth inning while also failing to score a single run in 16 consecutive innings.
That all changed in the sixth as Marietta scored three times to tie the score.
A single by Trent Castle plated the first run and later in the inning an RBI-double by Drew Wilkinson tied the score at 3-3.
