LAKEVILLE â€”Â Neither Plymouth nor Culver Girls Academy could wake up their bats, and both finished out their seasons with Class 3A St. Josephâ€™s Sectional losses at Newton Park Wednesday.
CGA recorded just two hits in a 9-0 loss to the host Lady Indians in game one, while Plymouth batters rallied with a run in the top of the seventh, but it was too little, too late in an 8-1 loss to Jimtown in the nightcap.
The Jimmies and St. Joe will play in the tournamentâ€™s championship tonight at 6 p.m.
JIMTOWN 8, PLYMOUTH 1
LAKEVILLE â€” It took longer than planned, but it was well worth it.
Behind the arm and bat of Justin Baker, as well as three two-out rallies, the LaVille Lancers defeated the Fremont Eagles, 4-3, in nine innings at Newton Park to open Sectional 35 of the Class 2A high school boys baseball playoffs.
The Lancers now play the Central Noble today at 6 p.m. Bremen faces Westview in the other semifinal contest and will start around 8. The championship game is slated for noon on Memorial Day.
CULVER â€” Argosâ€™ baseball team experienced little trouble piling up baserunners against South Central Wednesday.
Pushing them across the plate proved an entirely different matter.
The Dragons stranded 11 runners â€” five in scoring position â€” and dropped a 3-1 Class A Sectional 51 first-round tilt to the Satellites at Culver Community.
Play resumes today with the hosts taking on Westville at 5:30 p.m.
