FORT WAYNE — 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 wouldn’t relinquish.

“I think the key to the game was starting it off offensively with Bickle’s home run. I think that got us going,” 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.

Those were the first home runs of the season for both Bickle and Reed.

Columbia City was actually outhit 9-8 by the Bruins, but the Eagles made the most of their hits, especially with two bombs.
