SYRACUSE â€” Those in attendance at the baseball game between Columbia City and Wawasee Tuesday night were treated to a high-scoring affair.
The Eagles managed to come out on top of the Warriors 13-12.
The contest was back-and-forth, as there were eight lead changes.
The deciding run wasnâ€™t scored until the top of the seventh inning, when Eagle first baseman Zac Steinke hit an RBI single that drove in senior Derek Hinen from second. That run broke a 12-12 tie.
Pitcher Ryan Kerschner retook the mound for the bottom of the seventh to finish out the game.
