Schweiger leads Panthers past Rams

RANDOM LAKE – Drew Schweiger drove in three runs and earned a save with three scoreless innings in relief to lead the Plymouth Panthers to an 8-2 nonconference baseball win over the Random Lake Rams here Wednesday afternoon.

The win upped the Panthers’ record to 3-0. Schweiger allowed zero hits and one walk while striking out four. He also contributed two hits.

Derek Schweiger (Drew’s younger brother) and Zac Cain also had two hits each for PHS. Derek Schweiger contributed two RBIs and shared team lead in runs scored with Matt Olig at two each.

The Panthers scored eight un- answered runs after trailing 2-0 through three innings.

The winning hurler was Jake Steinhardt who started and went the first four frames. He allowed two earned runs on four hits with one walk and four whiffs.

“Jake worked hard and let his defense work for him despite not having his best command,”said PHS head coach Butch Cain.

“We had timely hitting and our defense continued to make plays in completing our third contest without committing an error.”

The Panthers suffered a blow when senior Cole Meyer broke a wrist in the fifth when he got tangled up with the first baseman while running out a grounder.

“Cole’s bat and versatility will definitely be missed as he is out for the remainder of the season but we are confident that we can do a good job of filling his role with a number of guys taking on additional responsibilities,” said coach Cain.

“Cole’s workmanlike attitude and quiet confidence will also be something we will also have to emulate in his absence from the lineup.”
