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 â€” Floods, snow and a Plymouth win, it really doesnâ€™t get any better in April.
While snow fell intermittently and every other baseball team in the NLC decided to take the night off, Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims and the Warsaw Tigers did everything they could to get their game in despite the conditions. At the end it was Plymouth with a flash flood of a seventh inning that was able to overcome Warsaw by a 4-3 final.
It was an unlikely finish made all the more dramatic as a young Plymouth team made a step towards learning how to win â€” especially over a talented, veteran Warsaw team.
WARSAW â€”Â After a week of what seemed like non-stop rain, Plymouth and Warsaw managed to salvage a five-inning softball game on Friday. Originally scheduled to be a home game for Plymouth, the field at Centennial Park was filled to the brim with 80 percent of the field underwater. Warsaw managed to get their field to be playable, but the weather continued to make conditions more difficult.
