CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Coe erased an early 3-run deficit as the 2nd seeded Kohawks rallied past top seed Wartburg for a 12-7 win. The victory grants Coe with the Iowa Conference's automatic bid in to the NCAA tournament.

Wartburg took the lead in the 2nd on a grand slam by senior Jackson Litterer. The home run was the first in his career and gave the Knights a 4-1 advantage.

Coe rallied and eventually took the lead for good on a 2 run triple by Craig Konrardy, part of a 6-run 6th inning.

The Kohawks and Knights will learn their postseason fate when the NCAA tournament field is announced on Monday.
