CHURUBUSCO â€” Sending 13 batters to the plate in the bottom of the first inning, Churubuscoâ€™s baseball team put on an offensive display against the visiting Garrett Railroaders Thursday evening, taking a 14-2 win in five innings.
The host Eagles pounded out 12 hits for the contest in just four at-bats. The outcome could have been worse as the Eagles left six runners on base.
SOUTH WHITLEY â€” After five innings, Whitkoâ€™s Lady Wildcats held a 4-1 lead over West Nobleâ€™s Lady Chargers.
But in the sixth inning, the Whitko bats started connecting and the flood gates opened on the way to an 11-1 win for the Lady â€™Cats to end the game early. Back-to-back singles by Hanna Yohe and Emily Hughes scored Syndney Lancaster and Riley Insley, respectively.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Winning games in dramatic fashion is becoming a habit for the Columbia City Lady Eagle softball team.
After winning the season opener against Marion in its final at-bat, Columbia City used two home runs in the bottom of the seventh â€” including a two-run walk-off shot â€” to down Wawasee 6-4 Tuesday night at Morsches Park.
The Lady Eagles faced a very good fielding Wawasee Lady Warrior team lead by pitcher Meghan Fretz. Fretz picked up 10 strike-outs in the game, including the first four Lady Eagles that she faced.
ARGOS â€” The Whitko Wildcat baseball team traveled to Argos Saturday and took a pair of lopsided wins against the Dragons. The Wildcats took game one 16-6 in six innings, and game two 15-1 in five innings.
In game one the Wildcats put runs on the board in every inning, taking an 8-1 lead after the fourth inning.
The Wildcats tacked on two more runs in the top of the fifth, and withstood a Dragon rally that saw the hosts push across five runs in the bottom of the fifth to close to within four at 10-6.
