GAME TWO

In the nightcap the Resorters banged out 13 hits and were helped by nine walks. Elkhart busted the game open with six runs in the top of the seventh to go up 19-7.

Sonia Schubert, Claire Feldmann, Maddie Schneider, Hannah Donhauser and Saylor Schoenborn spearheaded the Resorters’ attack with two hits each. Schoenborn and Donhauser had a team-high four RBIs apiece.

Evelynn Spaeth and Gardner keyed the Tigers’ bats with three hits each and Mueller had two. Spaeth and Gardner had a teamhigh two RBIs each.

Megan Waage was the winning hurler. Waage allowed seven runs (four earned) and two walks while striking out three in six innings.

“I was really impressed by the way my kids played each game. With starting shortstop Taylor Bubolz out with a slight concussion [sustained in Thursday’s game versus Cedar Grove- Belgium] I started four freshmen, three sophomores and two seniors,” said Tiger head coach Tom Heier.

“Considering the seniors started at catcher and pitcher I thought the rest of my team played a great game. It is a great indicator for the future when my starting infield was three freshmen and a sophomore.”
