In a close region faceoff, the Spartans traveled to Gunnison on Tuesday to face off against the Bulldogs and returned home with a 3-2 loss under their belts.
Gunnison scored early, managing a run in the first to put up the first points of the game before adding a second in the third. Emery responded strongly in the fourth and fifth innings to tie the game. Gunnison managed a third run in the third, however, that would boost them to the overall win.
Spartans Jordan Baletka and Kyson Stilson each walked away from the match with an RBI for the Black and Gold. Baletka also managed a triple in the region play.
Emery will again face off against Gunnison on Friday. This time, however, the Spartans will play on their own diamond. Action is slated to begin at 3:30 p.m.
