LANSING | In cold conditions and with limited action this spring, T.F. South coach Matt Tiffy knows his team is going to make some mistakes.

The Rebels defense committed four errors and a three-run third inning doomed T.F. South to a 5-4 loss to Lincoln-Way East Tuesday. Despite a comeback attempt late in the game, the Rebels left men stranded on first and second to end the game and drop their record to 1-2 on the season.

"Game experience is something," Tiffy said, "and with the weather not co-operating we didn't get a lot of time out here on the field. This is our third game and the first half we were kicking the ball around a lot and the second half we decided, hey, we can play with these guys."

Lead-off hitter Bobby Colantuono had three hits, including two doubles, and scored a run for the Rebels in the loss. Cody Krilich was 2-for-4 with two RBIs but was thrown out on the bases on two separate occasions.

"We couldn't get out often so we're not used to the weather," Colantuono said. "We came out a little rusty. We've haven't been together in a while so I think we need to patch those things up. We still played a heck of a game and we came back. I feel like we have a lot of positive things to look forward to."

The Rebels offense struggled through the first four innings and did not record its first run until the bottom of the fifth when Jake Pasko scored on a Krilich single. T.F. South then added two more runs in the sixth when Kyle Janowski's RBI-double scored Anthony Spangler and Janowski then came around to score on an RBI double by Ben Berridge.

After a one-out double by Colantuono in the bottom of seven, Krilich drove in Colantuono to bring the Rebels to within one, but it was as close as T.F. South would come. Spangler pitched a complete game for the Rebels, striking out three while walking two and allowing six hits.

"We always have faith in each other," Colantuono said. "We're a great hitting team and sometimes we don't come out as high as we want to but we always feel like we have a chance to stay in the game."
