Coach Jim Boehne gives the ball to McKendree University reliever Jon Trampe late this afternoon at Hypes Field, with the bases loaded and no outs in the ninth inning, but with McKendree leading the University of Missouri-St. Louis, 10-4. An infield error allowed two more runs, before Trampe shut down the Tritons with a strikeout and a couple of infield grounders. If you're headed for Lebanon, Ill., at the end of the month, the Bearcats will be hosting the University of Southern Indiana on March 29 and 30. Both games start at noon.
