DUNLAP â€“ The story of Plymouthâ€™s baseball season could be the story of one inning.
On the road Plymouth once again couldnâ€™t overcome one big inning â€” a seven-run Concord second â€” in falling to the Minutemen by a 10-4 final. It was the second time this season Plymouth fell prey to a big Concord inning after the Pilgrims surrendered eight runs in the third inning of a 12-0 home loss to the Minutemen April 17.
The Minutemen (9-3) plated seven in the second off Plymouth starter Bailey Clark in his first start of the season.
BOURBON â€” The John Glenn Falcons played a near perfect game in all three phases as they routed the Triton Trojans 11-0 on the Trojansâ€™ home turf Friday night.
Senior Mark Einhorn threw a one-hitter with nine strikeouts and one walk, with the lone hit not coming until the sixth inning, and the Falcons played solid defense behind him, not committing a single error in the game.

BOURBON â€” For four innings, Culver Girls Academy hung tough with Triton.
But in the end, the Lady Trojansâ€™ big second inning proved more than enough for the visitors.
Triton batters collected eight hits for nine runs batting through the order in the bottom of the second, and Hannah Jenningsâ€™ two-run double in the bottom of the fifth sealed CGAâ€™s fate, 13-3 in five innings in Bourbon Thursday.
â€śWeâ€™ve been struggling hitting the ball, but this week weâ€™ve hit the ball decent,â€ť said Triton softball coach Steve McBride.
