Trailing 10-1 after four innings, Polk State fought back before losing 11-10 to Hillsborough Community College tonight at Bing Tyus Yard in Winter Haven.  

The big blow came in the bottom of the eight. With the Eagles down 11-6 with two out and the bases loaded, Tor Sehnert drilled the first pitch over the leftfield fence. The grand slam cut the lead to 11-10 but Polk State could get no closer.  

In addition to his homer, Sehnert singled and walked. 

Demetrio Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, and a run. 

Drew Howard had a single, a sacrifice fly, two walks, two runs, and an RBI. 

Danny Berg tripled, walked twice, drove in a run, and scored twice. 

Nico Limoncelli went 1-for-2 with two runs and two RBI. 

Brady Gulakowski had a single, walk, a sacrifice fly, a run, and an RBI. 

Trent Sinkfield doubled and scored a run. 

Starter Jake Curry (3-3) took the loss.  

Brandon Willliams, Carter Slentz, Reese Jackowiak, Danny Berg, and Alex Goff pitched in relief. 

The Eagles (24-25, 11-15) travel to Avon Park on Friday for a 5 p.m. game against South Florida State College.
