The Storm Lake High baseball team finished its season with a 16-12 record overall here Wednesday night with a 13-1 loss to Denison.
Denison had two big inning in which it scored its runs, including six in the fourth and seven in the fifth.
The Tornadoes open regional tournament play Saturday against LeMars in Orange City, but coach Bill McCabe didn't seem overly concerned that Wednesday's loss would carry over into Saturday.
"I just told the kids we have to forget this game and move on," he said. "We played very well on Monday night but it was just the opposite tonight."
Storm Lake lefthander Nick Sorbe took the loss. He shut down Denison for the first three innings but got roughed up for six runs in the fourth.
Sorbe pitched through the first out of the fifth but was replaced by Lance Eddie, who yielded the next seven runs.
The Tornadoes hurt themselves with four errors. Denison had 12 hits on the night.
"The errors didn't help," McCabe said. "But some credit has to go to Denison. Every time we made a mistake they made us pay."
