When Lakeville North countered a big blow made by Prior Lake, the Lakers had a response ready.

Prior Lake scored five runs in the final three innings to earn a 6-3 South Suburban Conference road win at Lakeville North High School on Wednesday. A.J. Lattery pitched a complete game and Corbin Cross had a home run and three RBI for the Lakers.

Pinch-hitter Sam Tanner lashed a RBI double to right-center in the sixth for the eventual winning run and a 4-3 lead. Cross had a RBI double in the seventh and the Lakers got another run in via a balk.

Prior Lake went up 1-0 in the second on a RBI single from Sam Emmerich. Lakeville North tied it on a RBI single from senior catcher Nick Juaire in the third.

Cross’ homer was a two-run shot to left field with two outs in the fifth, giving Prior Lake a big boost, but Lakeville North (10-4, 10-3) responded in the bottom of the inning when Juaire hit his own two-run blast to tie the game 3-3.
