PLYMOUTH â€”Â It was a game of inches in Plymouthâ€™s Centennial Park last night.
A couple more inches left on a hard line drive by April Hampton in the first could have plated two Lady Pilgrims runs early. Another couple inches to the left and Emilee Keilman could have been standing on second base instead of flying out to the center fielder in the gap. And if Bailey Brown could have stretched her arm out two more inches she may have caught a fly ball to right field that ended up a run-scoring triple for Concord.
BREMEN â€” Success in the game of baseball often requires a short memory.
When Culverâ€™s first three batters went double, double, triple, and the Cavaliers scored three runs in their first five at-bats, it looked like it might be a long night for Bremen. But the Lions put it behind them and bore down with two runs in the bottom of the first, then tacked on another four in the second en route to a 10-4 Northern State Conference defeat of visiting Culver Wednesday night in Bremen.
Plymouth dimed at Concord
Plymouth put up just five hits to Concordâ€™s 13, and the Minutemen handed the Pilgrims a five-inning defeat, 13-3 Wednesday night.
Chase Peters took the loss on the mound for Plymouth giving up seven hits and three walks for three earned runs as Concord plated seven during a big third inning.
Connor Flynn doubled and tripled with two RBI for the Pilgrims in the road loss.
