Lowe's second homer for Minnesota tops winless Maryland

8/19/2007

Tanner Lowe sent a 1-0 pitch from Canaan Cropper
over the hedges in left field with nobody out in the bottom of the
sixth as Coon Rapids, Minn. beat Salisbury, Md. 4-3.

Teammates mobbed Lowe at the plate after the 13-year-old slugger
hit his second homer of the game to lead Coon Rapids (1-1) its
first win in South Williamsport.

Lowe's first homer, a two-run shot in the first, barely cleared
the left-field wall. There was no doubt with the second one, as
fans braved slippery conditions to retrieve the ball near the
hedges beyond the fence.

Cropper had a three-run homer in the fourth for winless Maryland
(0-2).
