The Resorters banged out nine hits and drew a whopping 13 walks. Elkhart scored five runs in the bottom of the first inning which erase a 3-0 deficit.

The Blue Bombers won the nightcap, 12-1, in six innings (run rule).

In the opener of the Big East Conference small-school division twinbill, Ransom Yasko and Parker Vollbrecht led the Elkhart bats with two hits each. Yasko and Taylor Cain had a team-high two RBIs each.

The Resorters stole a seasonhigh 15 bases, led by Vollbrecht with four and Connor Wirtz, three. Wirtz and Patrick Ward scored a team-best three runs.

“We got out to a great start – scoring five in the first inning which helped set the tone. We took advantage of 13 walks and were aggressive on the bases,” said Resorter head coach Davin Hill.

“Only four strikeouts means we put the ball in play, keeping pressure on their defense.”

Max Ward was the winning pitcher. He allowed six runs (all earned) on four hits with six walks and five strikeouts in four innings. Yasko threw the final three frames and gave up three earned runs on three hits with no walks, one hit batter and four strikeouts.

“A solid pitching start from Max Ward which allowed Ransom to come in and deliver his best outing on the mound this year,” said Hill.

Noah Ertel led K/C in hits with two.

GAME TWO

In the nightcap, Kyle Fowler fired a four-hitter to post the win for the Blue Bombers. Fowler fanned eight batters and walked only one.

“We had a very slow start and got behind 7-0 through three innings, and that allowed Fowler to really gain control of the game on the mound for them,” Hill noted.

The coach said Fowler kept the Resorter batters off balance with his curveball.

K/C pounded out 11 hits, led by Fowler with three.

Elkhart didn’t have any batters with more than one hit. Zach Bauer had an RBI.

Patrick Ward was the Resorters’ starting and losing hurler. He gave up seven runs (three earned) on seven hits with five walks, one hit batter and four strikeouts in four innings.

Elkhart is 1-13 in the BEC (1- 13 overall).
