BREMEN â Mickey Mantle once famously quipped that âHitting the ball was easy. Running around the bases was the tough part.â
Bremen baseball found the opposite to be true in Wednesdayâs Northern State Conference game with LaVille. Luckily for the Lions, theyâre pretty darned good at running those bases.
PLYMOUTH â A win, is a win, is a win... and Plymouthâs Pilgrims made it three wins in their last four games with an extra inning NLC victory over Wawasee by a final of 7-6 in nine innings Wednesday.
âIt was a good win,â said Plymouth coach Ryan Wolfe. âYou have some of those games, what it comes down to is that we have seven and they have six, and thatâs all that matters. Youâd like to get there a different way, but it is what it is.â
WALKERTON â Culver Community battled nine innings with Class 3A, No. 4-ranked John Glenn Wednesday night.
In the end, it was an unearned run that did the Cavs in.
Mark Einhorn reached on an error in the bottom of the ninth, and Culver pitcher Kyle Vlach intentionally walked Justin Gierlowski, bringing up David Jaworski, who took a full count offering from Vlach up the middle to score Einhorn for the 1-0 walk-off win at the Falconsâ home at The Nest in Walkerton.
Rally not enough for Plymouth at Wawasee
Plymouth made the long trip to Wawasee on Wednesday night in a varsity-only Northern Lakes Conference battle.
The Lady Pilgrims plated three runs in the top of the sixth, but it proved too little, too late as the host Warriors handed their guests an 8-3 defeat.
The first inning was defensively focused as each team remained scoreless, but Wawasee broke through in the second when Kylee Rostochank singled to left, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on a deep RBI double from Ashlynn Fisher.
ETNA GREEN â Kosciusko County officers arrested two people Tuesday after discovering an alleged meth lab while attempting to serve a warrant.

Deputies were met by one of the residents of the house who directed them to what appeared to be an active one-pot method methamphetamine lab.
