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.

BOURBON â€” Tritonâ€™s girls tennis match with Whitko Tuesday was a win-win: The Lady Trojans got the match victory, 3-2, and the Wildcatsâ€™ style provided them a sort of sneak preview of tonightâ€™s conference opponent LaVille.
Triton won in straight sets on both doubles courts and at the 1 singles position at home to move to an even 2-2 on the young season.
Plymouth tops 3-way
Plymouthâ€™s boys golf team jumped out to a 2-0 start to its dual meet season, and Bremen fell to both the Pilgrims and Mishawaka Marian in a three-way meet at Plymouth Country Club Tuesday.
Nate Kolter shot a 1-over-par 37 to lead Plymouth, Ben Schenk shot a 40, and John Ruff and Zach Craft both turned in 42s for the consistent Pilgrims.
Bremen was led by Micah Knoblockâ€™s 39, while Kevin Woodyard turned in a 41, followed by Nate Srehlerâ€™s 52 and a pair of 56s from Joe Zeltwanger and Brad Foster.

BOURBON â€” With a young lineup and a roster full of injuries, Triton has sometimes had trouble fielding the ball this season.
Luckily for the Lady Trojans, theyâ€™ve been able to make up for it at the plate.
Tritonâ€™s batting order produced 13 hits â€” including six during a six-run fourth inning â€” to help offset five errors, and the Trojans rallied past visiting Knox Monday in the two teamsâ€™ Northern State Conference opener in Bourbon, 11-10.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth softball team didnâ€™t have any problems hitting the ball in the conference opener last night; it was when the hits came that caused the problems.
The Lady Pilgrim offense couldnâ€™t find a timely hit as it left eight runners on base â€” five in scoring position â€” in a 7-2 loss to visiting Elkhart Memorial.
Plymouth wins NLC opener
Plymouth jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first three and a half innings, and the Pilgrims won their Northern Lakes Conference opener 15-6 on the road at Elkhart Memorial Monday.
Plymouth tallied 17 hits in the win, including five doubles and three triples.
Chase Peters tapped out two doubles and a triple to finish with four RBI, while Connor Flynn and Ike Kastner each both tripled on their way to four RBI apiece.
Plymouth senior Chase Peters earned his first pitching win of the season giving up four earned runs in six innings pitched as the Pilgrims snapped a two-game skid against Rochester last week.
Bremen sophomore Morgan Smith earned the Lady Lions their only win in a dual meet with sectional rival Plymouth last week, avenging one of only two losses last year in the process.
