PLYMOUTH â€” An apt title for the book about this yearâ€™s Plymouth Pilgrim baseball season would be â€śThe Agony and the Ecstasyâ€ť.
There was a heavy dose of both at Bill Nixon Field on Tuesday night, but in the end Plymouth would have a little more of the ecstasy. A walk-off single by Plymouth shortstop Justin Drudge plated the tying and winning runs in the bottom of the seventh over CMA (9-6) for a final of 11-10.
Triton wins at Manchester
Triton's softball team ran out to a 3-0 lead in the first three frames and held on for an eventual 4-1 victory over Manchester on the road Tuesday night.
Hannah Jennings had two extra base hits, doubling in the first and second innings and singling in the fourth as she, Krystal Sellers and Allyson Brown combined for eight hits and two RBIs.
Brycelyn Garbison struck out six hitters while allowing one earned run on six hits and two walks over seven innings for the win inside the circle.
NAPPANEE â€” Three sixth inning runs were the difference as Plymouth (10-13) dropped a Northern Lakes Conference road decision at NorthWood (11-6) by a 5-2 final.
Facing NorthWood senior Tommy Klem for the second time this season, the Pilgrims had a better idea of how to approach their at-bats, recovering from a 2-0 early deficit to tie the game in the fourth. Blake Clevelandâ€™s two-run single in the third gave the Panthers an early lead.

BREMEN â€” With four championship matches left to wrap at the Northern State Conference Tournament, it looks like Bremenâ€™s girls tennis team has an outright NSC title in the bag.
The Lady Lions have yet to finish up on the three singles courts and at 2 doubles after earning championship berths on all courts over the weekend.
SOUTH BEND â€” Add a non-conference Saturday after a long week of baseball to the venue of Coveleski Stadium and opponent South Bend Clay (11-6) and you have a roller coaster ride of a morning that ended with Plymouth falling to Clay by a 12-6 final.
â€śWe didnâ€™t take any steps back today,â€ť said Plymouth coach Ryan Wolfe. â€śWeâ€™re right where we want to be and moving forward, and It was just one of those days where the wheels fell off. They fell off, and we couldnâ€™t get back on the wagon.â€ť
