PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims beat Mother Natureâ€™s rain but couldnâ€™t hold off Concordâ€™s rain of runs as they fell in an NLC contest by a 12-0 final Wednesday.
While the final speaks of something different, the game really focused on one play â€” a third inning bunt that turned into a flood of runs that would put Plymouth behind the eight ball for the rest of the night â€” literally.
WALKERTON â€” The John Glenn baseball team found its return home to the Falcon Nest to its liking Wednesday.
Justin Gierlowski pitched a one-hit shutout in six innings of work, and Glenn batters scratched out runs in all but one inning as the Falcons celebrated their homecoming after 12 days on the road with a 10-0, six-inning diming of the visiting Triton Trojans in a Northern State Conference game in Walkerton.
Lady Trojans survive John Glenn rally
John Glenn plated two runs in the top of the seventh, but it wasnâ€™t enough to crawl back from an early five-run deficit, and Triton escaped the Falcons in a 7-6 Northern State Conference thriller in Bourbon Wednesday.
Glenn scored on a single by Holly Adams and an error in the fourth inning, a groundout by Brittany Snodgrass in the fifth inning, and a two-run error in the seventh inning. Still, Glenn couldnâ€™t catch the Trojans.
WEST, Texas (AP) â€” Rescue workers searched rubble that witnesses compared to a war zone early Thursday for survivors of a fertilizer plant explosion in a small Texas town that killed as many as 15 people and injured more than 160 others. The blast left the factory a smoldering ruin and leveled homes and businesses for blocks in every direction.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth Redevelopment Commission has a contractor to start work on the city's new River Park Square.
At their meeting on Tuesday night the Commission awarded the contract to Michiana Contracting - who had the low bid - but was also able to incorporate the city's "wish list" for the project.
Michiana had a base bid of slightly over $1.3 million for the project. Adding all of the alternates for the project would push it to just slightly over the budget price at a little over $1.6 million.
