FORT WAYNE â€” Columbia City rode two home runs to victory in a 9-7 win over Northrop Friday night.
The first was a two-run shot over the left field fence off the bat of Eagle third baseman Jordan Bickle. His dinger came in the top of the first inning, giving Columbia City a lead it wouldnâ€™t relinquish.
â€śI think the key to the game was starting it off offensively with Bickleâ€™s home run. I think that got us going,â€ť said Columbia City Head Coach Zac Bireley.
The other homer, also to left field, was a grand slam by right fielder Keaton Reed in the third frame that put the Eagles up 7-1.
LAGRANGE â€” Whitkoâ€™s baseball team lost a road contest to Prairie Heights Saturday.
The Wildcats fell by a final score of 7-3.
Both teams struck early. Whitko opened with a 3-0 lead after the top of the first inning. The Panthers quickly struck back in the bottom of the first with three runs of their own to tie the score.
FORT WAYNE â€” Columbia City took two from Bishop Dwenger in a double header Saturday at Shoaff Park.

Columbia City betters its record to 13-8 with the two wins. Both victories are part of an important turn-around for the Eagles, who before Saturday had a 4-6 record so far in May.
â€śI think we were in the game, as opposed to other games weâ€™ve had this last month,â€ť said Columbia City Head Coach Zac Bireley.
