PLYMOUTH â€” For the second straight day Plymouth and Warsaw faced off on the baseball field and each day had the same result â€” a Pilgrim loss.

The lone Pilgrim run came in the sixth inning off the bat of Jacob Seagraves. A leadoff walk to Chase Peters and a sacrifice bunt by Joe Knapp set the table for Seagraves. He grounded an Austin Moore breaking ball between the shortstop and third base and a hustling Peters just beat the throw to score.
