WALKERTON â€” The John Glenn baseball team answered back from its first loss of the season with an eight-inning win in a doubleheader versus Rochester Saturday.
The Falcons succumbed 7-3 in the opener but battled back for a narrow 9-8 win in an extra-inning second game to earn the split.
â€śWe always play a spirited doubleheader with John Glenn,â€ť said Rochester baseball coach Bryan Hooker. â€śYear in and year out it seems like we split. Every season this is a good way to gauge our teams with this doubleheader. I hope we continue this for a long time.â€ť
