The visiting Monarchs scored five runs of their own in the top of the second to take a 7-0 lead. Lakeview posted its first five-spot in the bottom of the second and scored five more runs in the fourth to close the gap to 13-11. Aquinas scored three runs in the sixth to take a 16-12 lead. The Vikings couldn’t answer in the sixth, but came up with the game-winning rally in the seventh.
