PLYMOUTH â€” Bremen head coach Bo Hundt knew coming into the season that his teamâ€™s fortunes were going to hinge on pitching.
It was certainly the Lionsâ€™ undoing Wednesday.
Bremenâ€™s pitching staff struggled with control issues in the blustery conditions, and Plymouth capitalized on a total of 11 walks and five wild pitches â€” including four bases on balls and a pair of wild pitches during a decisive three-run sixth â€” as the Pilgrims claimed their second straight win with a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the visiting Lions at Bill Nixon Field.
Plymouth High School senior Hayden Skirvin recently signed a letter of intent to play football next fall at the University of Indianapolis. The coaching staff at the University of Indianapolis heavily recruited Hayden to play tight end for the Division II Greyhounds, who finished the 2011 season with a record of 7-4.
