The Yellowjackets lost on a bases loaded walk in extra innings Tuesday.

NOVI — The contrast between Saturday’s thrill of victory and Tuesday’s agony of defeat could not have been greater for Birmingham Detroit Country Day’s baseball program.

Three days after capturing a regional title on a walk-off eighth inning home run, the Yellowjackets’ elation was turned on its head as they fell 4-3 to Dearborn Divine Child in the Division 2 quarterfinal Tuesday, surrendering the deciding run on a bases loaded walk in extra innings.

Country Day at one point held a 3-0 lead, but was unable to score again in the midst of Divine Child’s comeback efforts to force an eighth inning of play. The Yellowjackets went down quietly in the top half of the inning before running into trouble in the bottom of the frame.

A hit batsman put the Falcons’ lead-off man on base, followed by a sac bunt. An intentional walk and a hit to load the bases came next, setting the stage for Divine Child senior Danny Blade to come to the plate.

With the count worked to full, Blade watched as ball four allowed the game-winning run to cross home plate, which lifted the Falcons to a literal walk-off victory and a trip to the state semifinals.

“That is a heart-breaking way to lose,” Country Day coach Steve Lepkowski said. “We got in trouble in that last inning, obviously, but to lose on a ball, a non-hit ball, that is as tough as they come. I thought our kids battled hard. Jeremiah (Tyler) and Steven (Mann) were pitching on short rest. Those are two great competitors that gave everything they had.”

Divine Child (27-15) will face Linden on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. in the semifinals played on the campus of Michigan State University. It will be the Falcons’ first appearance in the semifinals since winning the 2010 state title.

Country Day took a 3-0 lead in the top of the third, but squandered a chance to put the game out of reach by leaving the bases loaded. The Yellowjackets got two of their runs from a bases loaded walk and hit by pitch.

“In that (third) inning, I knew it probably was going to come back and get us. You don’t get bases loaded and score some runs without a hit. If we had gotten that hit, it (would have) opened it up and we’d probably win in seven (innings),” Lepkowski said.

Divine Child scratched across one run in the bottom of the third and knotted the game with a two-out, two-run single by junior Scott Combs in the fifth.

Both teams stranded eight batters in the game.

“We’ll take a ‘W’ against a team like that any way we can get it,” Falcons coach Tony DeMare said.

Divine Child received eight innings of solid pitching from junior Daniel Bullard. The Yellowjackets, who were playing in their first quarterfinal since 2009, conclude the 2016 season with a 29-9 record. The team will lose seven roster players to graduation.

“Our seniors and our group, I just told them that buying in last year to what we’ve been trying to do, those are some kids that I love,” Lepkowski said. “They have done so much for our school, our program and our community. If you come to a Country Day game now, you’re going to see a couple hundred people there. On Saturday’s (regional title win), it was electric and it’s because of what these kids did.”

Lepkowski said the program’s expectations for future seasons will have elevated thanks to this year’s deep postseason run.

“The expectation was to go to East Lansing. To be honest, I never envisioned us losing in the playoffs,” Lepkowski said. “I’m not saying that in an arrogant way, but we we had a group that I thought was the caliber of the best around. I think that our kids performed at a very high level.”
