April 16, 2012

WARSAW — The Columbia City Lady Eagles softball team traveled to Warsaw Saturday and came up short in the rain, losing 12-2.

She struck out the next batter. She then threw an errant pitch which advanced the runner from second to third base.

A second straight offline pitch got the runner home to give Warsaw a 1-0 lead.
