PLYMOUTH â€” Nothing has come easy for Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims so far in the new baseball season, and the outcome Thursday was a 7-6 win over Triton that didnâ€™t come without a price.
First of all a five-run Plymouth lead in the seventh wasnâ€™t safe as the Trojans made a valiant run with two outs in the seventh, plating four runs with three two out hits, the big blow a Gabe McPherson single that plated Landon Kaufman and Jayden Hargrave and put him at second base with the gameâ€™s tying run.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was entirely too much Eric Knepper for Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims as the Bremen senior pitched and hit his team to a come from behind win at Bill Nixon Field on Wednesday night.
Knepper was 3-for-4 with a triple three RBIâ€™s and a run scored at the plate and struck out five before leaving with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to take the win on the mound. Bremen reliever Bryce Cassel came on to record the final out and the save with the bases loaded in the seventh.
