About this Article

A theme emerged from the dramatic conclusion of the 3-game baseball series between Larkin and Elgin: it only takes one big inning. Larkin dominated Elgin for the first 13 innings of Saturday's doubleheader at Trout Park, but the Maroons mitigated five hours of frustration with a 6-run rally in their final at-bat of Game 2 to win 10-9, thereby splitting the twinbill and winning the series 2-1.
