Tigers ground Rockets three in a row

HOWARDS GROVE – The Howards Grove Tigers swept a rare tripleheader from Cedar Grove- Belgium in Central Lakeshore Conference softball action here Monday.

Howards exploded for nine runs in the bottom of the second inning to go up 11-5. The Tigers collected seven hits in the frame, led by Reinemann who whacked a two-run triple and a two-run single.
