The Detroit Lakes Angels let one get away from them Friday night at Washington Ballpark, losing 11-8 to the Vergas Loons despite taking an 8-4 lead into the final inning.


“You have to play all nine innings in baseball,” said Angels coach Phil Kirchner.

Unfortunately, DL failed to remember that adage on Friday, despite taking an 8-1 lead after the fifth inning.
