A's Season Ends as Rally Falls Short
Nate Dickhausen

COLD SPRING, Minn. The A's came up 90 feet short on the 2012 season, as they left the tying run on 3rd base in a nail biting 3-2 loss to the defending class B champion Sauk Rapids Cyclones on Saturday afternoon.

Down 3-1 heading into the bottom of the 9th inning, the A's managed to load the bases with nobody out. The deficit was cut to 3-2 after Brandon Wilhelmi forced in a run after being hit by a pitch with 1 out.

But the Cyclones closer was able to escape further damage by getting a strikeout and popout to end the game - clinching a seat in the Super Sections for the Cyclones and ending the A's state tournament hopes.

Nate Dickhausen continued to be the workhorse for manager Sean Culhane, working 8 2/3 innings. Dickhausen gave up 3 runs on 7 hits while striking out 7 batters.

Cody Curry was the lone A's hitter to pick up multiple hits, finishing 2 for 4 on the afternoon.
