ELKHART â€” What a difference a day made as Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims came back from a tough conference loss at home to take a big win on the road over Elkhart Memorial 10-7.
â€śWe battled and got a win; itâ€™s a team we got beat by earlier in the year, and thatâ€™s what itâ€™s about,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Ryan Wolfe. â€śWeâ€™d like to win two, but if you canâ€™t weâ€™ll take it.â€ť
WALKERTON â€” John Glenn started out the season on a 10-win tear, but the Falcons suddenly seem to be slumping. Bremenâ€™s baseball team is on the rise, meanwhile.
Headed in opposite directions, when the two teams met at The Nest in Walkerton Wednesday, it made for an old-fashioned spanking.
Bremen plated seven runs in the top of the first on the strength of six hits and four Glenn errors, and the Lions never looked back in a 13-2, five-inning defeat of the Falcons on the road.
Culver falls at Jimtown
Culver Community lost an 18-8 game on the road at Northern State Conference-leading Jimtown Wednesday.
The Jimmies recorded 19 hits in the game, including two home runs apiece by Evan Oblinger and Cole Gaugler as they downed the Cavs in five.
Nick Pritz homered and doubled for Culver, which responded to a five-run Jimtown first with five runs of its own in the top of the second, but fell too far behind to dig out of as the home team scratched out seven runs over the second and third innings.
â€˘Â JIMTOWN 18, CULVER COMMUNITY 8 (5 inn.)

BOURBON â€” Itâ€™s not often that the coach of a rival conference team gives you a helping hand. But that seems to have been just what happened for Triton senior Shana Anderson.
When Holy Cross womenâ€™s basketball coach Aimee Niespodziany was on the lookout for guard prospects, New Prairie head coach Doug Matthys pointed her in the direction of repeat Northern State Conference-champion Tritonâ€™s backcourt. Niespodziany reached out to Lady Trojans coach Adam Heckaman for some tape, and when he obliged the Saints skipper found her next recruit in Anderson.
