Lowe's second homer for Minnesota tops winless Maryland
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).
