Kolden lifts CMA in 12
Trent Kolden came through with a pair of big hits for Culver Military, and the Eagles outlasted Jimtown 13-12 in a 12-inning marathon win at the Class 3A Plymouth Baseball Sectional Tuesday.
Kolden’s RBI double in the bottom of the ninth gave the Eagles new life, and hist walk-off homer in the 12th pushed CMA into the championship game opposite St. Joe today.
The win came on the heels of another extra-inning victory over Mishawaka Marian, a 6-5, eight-inning affair last Friday.
Coin Dean also homered and doubled en route to three RBIs for CMA, which was out-hit 16-15 but recorded six doubles and two home runs for the win.
