Albert Lea led 6-0 going into the bottom of the sixth inning and put together a rally. They got their first run of the game on a triple from Liam Williams. A throwing error brought him home. They got another run on 2 more errors, but Albert Lea’s Spencer Jones would get a strikeout to get out of the inning. Albert Lea held on in the 7th to get the 6-3 victory.
