Blake Milliser scored Plymouthâ€™s game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh following his two-run double off the left field fence that knotted the game at 3-all as the Pilgrims edged Warsaw 4-3 Friday night.
Plymouth 2 singles player Mikayla German outlasted Warsawâ€™s Sarah Boyle in a three-set tiebreaker, 6-3, 1-6, 7-6(4), to clinch the Lady Pilgrims a clean sweep of the Tigers in the two teamsâ€™ NLC-opener Thursday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims made it two in a row, taking a home win on Saturday afternoon over the LaPorte Slicers by an 8-5 final.
Not as dramatic as the Pilgrimâ€™s bottom of the seventh comeback over Warsaw on Friday, it was a come from behind nonetheless as Plymouth starter Levi Schuler and reliever Jacob Frantz surrendered five to the Slicers in innings two, three and four. A Plymouth fifth inning explosion plated five, and then it was all Braydon Davidson.
Plymouth falls twice at tripleheader
On Saturday the Plymouth softball team played host to a tripleheader against Pioneer and Whiting High Schools, falling to Pioneer 11-0 and Whiting 11-1.
Plymouth faced off against Pioneer in the 10 a.m. opener with cold but sunny playing conditions.
The visitors started strong, scoring three runs in the first and two more in the second. Plymouth then tightened up its defense, and Pioneer did not score again until the fifth inning when it more than doubled its score with six runs to push the Pilgrims into an 11-run deficit.
PLYMOUTH â€” Floods, snow and a Plymouth win, it really doesnâ€™t get any better in April.
While snow fell intermittently and every other baseball team in the NLC decided to take the night off, Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims and the Warsaw Tigers did everything they could to get their game in despite the conditions. At the end it was Plymouth with a flash flood of a seventh inning that was able to overcome Warsaw by a 4-3 final.
It was an unlikely finish made all the more dramatic as a young Plymouth team made a step towards learning how to win â€” especially over a talented, veteran Warsaw team.
WARSAW â€”Â After a week of what seemed like non-stop rain, Plymouth and Warsaw managed to salvage a five-inning softball game on Friday. Originally scheduled to be a home game for Plymouth, the field at Centennial Park was filled to the brim with 80 percent of the field underwater. Warsaw managed to get their field to be playable, but the weather continued to make conditions more difficult.
CULVER â€” Micah Budzinski isnâ€™t one to back away from a challenge.
When the Culver Community football star first decided he wanted to play for Division I Purdue, it wasnâ€™t because he was being offered a scholarship â€” as a recently accepted walk-on with the team, heâ€™ll have to pay the full freight himself. And while Budzinski says he loves football, the four-year, three-sport standout says it wasnâ€™t purely a love of the game that inspired him to walk on with the Boilermakers either.
Instead, he says it was an opportunity to test himself and to do something exceptional.
Persistent rain throughout the area and saturated grounds made for another round of postponements and cancellations Thursday night.
The majority of those events have yet to be rescheduled, and in addition to the changes forced by the ongoing inclement weather, there were two changes to area teamsâ€™ athletic schedules for non-weather related reasons announced Thursday.
