CHURUBUSCO â€” Saturdayâ€™s baseball game between the host Churubusco Eagles and the Garrett Railroaders gave fans a preview of what appears to be on the road to becoming a Northeast Corner Conference match-up, as the Railroaders are on the verge of accepting an invitation to join Churubusco in the NECC.
Saturdayâ€™s game was the second half of a mixed double header as the Railroaders fell to New Haven by a 6-1 count in the opener.
The start of the Eaglesâ€™ and Railroadersâ€™ game was delayed also as both teams waited for players who were completing the SATs.
When the game finally started, it turned out to be a seesaw affair until the Eagles were able to assert themselves in the final innings, taking a 10-7 win.
In the top of the first inning the Railroaders came out and with one out recorded three singles in a row, two of them coming in hit-and-run situations to push across two runs. A fine play on a throw to third, by second baseman T.J. Campbell went to Devin Peters, who tagged out a sliding Ian Belville. Peters was injured on the play and did not return to the game forcing the Eagles to make more adjustments in the field.
