Blake Milliser scored Plymouthâ€™s game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh following his two-run double off the left field fence that knotted the game at 3-all as the Pilgrims edged Warsaw 4-3 Friday night.
Plymouth 2 singles player Mikayla German outlasted Warsawâ€™s Sarah Boyle in a three-set tiebreaker, 6-3, 1-6, 7-6(4), to clinch the Lady Pilgrims a clean sweep of the Tigers in the two teamsâ€™ NLC-opener Thursday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims made it two in a row, taking a home win on Saturday afternoon over the LaPorte Slicers by an 8-5 final.
Not as dramatic as the Pilgrimâ€™s bottom of the seventh comeback over Warsaw on Friday, it was a come from behind nonetheless as Plymouth starter Levi Schuler and reliever Jacob Frantz surrendered five to the Slicers in innings two, three and four. A Plymouth fifth inning explosion plated five, and then it was all Braydon Davidson.
Plymouth falls twice at tripleheader
On Saturday the Plymouth softball team played host to a tripleheader against Pioneer and Whiting High Schools, falling to Pioneer 11-0 and Whiting 11-1.
Plymouth faced off against Pioneer in the 10 a.m. opener with cold but sunny playing conditions.
The visitors started strong, scoring three runs in the first and two more in the second. Plymouth then tightened up its defense, and Pioneer did not score again until the fifth inning when it more than doubled its score with six runs to push the Pilgrims into an 11-run deficit.
