The contest was suspended June 30 in the bottom of the third inning due to rain and was completed Wednesday. PHS upped its large-school division record to 16-2 (18-5 overall). Elkhart fell to 4-14 in the small-school division (4-15 overall).

“We played our game – loose with the energy and communication we are accustomed to playing with,” said Panther head coach Butch Cain.

Junior Keegan McMullen surrendered only one hit in four innings as he earned the win. McMullen, who started on the hill, allowed one earned run and four walks to go with five strikeouts. Cooper Gosse pitched one scoreless inning and gave up one hit and no walks while striking out one.

KOHLER GAME

The Panthers also had a strong all-around game Thursday evening – cruising to a 12-0 win over Kohler/ Sheboygan Christian at Kohler. PHS improved to 17-2 in the BEC (19-5 overall).

PHS banged out 12 hits, led by Jake Steinhardt, Joe Steinhardt and Sam Miller with two each. Taylor Struve, who slugged a home run, and Miller had a team-high three RBIs each.

The Steinhardt brothers scored a team-high two runs each.

Four PHS pitchers combined for a two-hitter. Jack Nytes was the winning hurler in relief. Nytes threw 1-2/3 innings and gave up one hit and one walk with three strikeouts. Cain thought Nytes, Michael Troka, Gosse and Zach Zeeveld pitched well.

“We made good decisions on the mound, on the bases and on defense. We were able to get positive contributions from all 16 members of our team,” said the coach.
