Junior Derek Schweiger led the Panthers’ hit parade with four, including two doubles. Jake Steinhardt, Matt Pohl and Taylor Struve contributed three each and Austin Struve had two. Steinhardt ripped two doubles and a triple.

Austin Struve, a senior, had a career-high five RBIs to pace PHS. Jake Steinhardt drove in four runs and Schweiger, two. Austin Struve and Steinhardt led in runs with three apiece.

The Panthers trailed 4-1 after one inning. They blew the game open with 17 runs over the final four frames, including six-run outbursts in the fourth and seventh.

“We hit real well and got a lot of guys in. We took advantage of some errors and played hard,” said Panther head coach Butch Cain.

“We used all fields [hitting]. We kept pressure with aggressive baserunning and caused some mistakes.”

Kohler/Christian committed a whopping nine errors which led to 13 unearned runs.

PHS upped its BEC record to 6-1 (8-5 overall) which is tied for second with Sheboygan Falls. New Holstein led the league at 8-0 through Monday, June 13.

Sophomore Holden Reilly was the winning pitcher in relief. Reilly allowed no runs on one hit with zero walks and five strikeouts in three innings. Ben Picard finished up with three scoreless frames – giving up one hit and three walks while striking out three.

“All three of our pitchers battled well,” said Cain.

Plymouth’s starting hurler was Taylor Struve.

Kohler/Christian (0-7 in the BEC, 0-8 overall) was held to only four hits and didn’t have a batter with more than one.

The losing pitcher was Kyle Fowler who allowed 11 runs (three earned) on 14 hits with no walks and three strikeouts in 4-1/3 innings.
