GREAT BEND — Last in, first out.
Bethany College’s baseball team was the sixth-and-final qualifier for the KCAC Postseason Tournament.
The Swedes’ stay was brief, however, as their 7-6 loss to Kansas Wesleyan on Thursday ousted them from the proceedings. They had lost Tabor 14-2 in Wednesday’s first round.
KW scored three runs in the bottom of a wild ninth, capped by a two-run walkoff single by Lincoln Rivera.
Bethany had just taken a 6-4 lead in the top of the inning on Josiry Cirino’s dramatic two-run homer.
The Swedes finished the year 25-32.
