ROUTSON STIFLES PLYMOUTH
Gabi Routson led the charge in the circle, tossing a five-hitter at Plymouth while her teammates did the damage at the plate in a 7-0 Wawasee softball win Friday night in Syracuse.
Routson did not walk a batter and struck out 13 Lady Pilgrims while adding an RBI single of her own. Madi Anderson ripped a pair of doubles and drove in three runs to aid the cause for Wawasee (13-12, 7-5 NLC). Alli Ousley had three hits and scored twice while Sam Malik and Kylie Norris each had two hits.
Marissa Sullivan had two of Plymouth’s hits and struck out 11 in her pitching duties, but gave way to four Wawasee runs in the bottom of the sixth to blow the game open.
For the second time this season, Wawasee put a 20-spot on the Plymouth JV, winning 20-2 Friday evening. Courtney Crabtree led the Wawasee (14-4) charge with a grand slam and six total RBIs. Alexis Graber added a single, double, triple and four runs scored.
WARRIOR RALLY FALLS JUST SHORT
The Wawasee baseball team rallied with four runs in the top of the seventh, but fell a run short in trying to upset Plymouth, 10-9, Friday night at Bill Nixon Field.
Nate Hare had the only extra-base hit of the night for Wawasee (5-16, 2-10 NLC), a solo homer, while Si Shear and Gage Reinhard each added a pair of singles.
The Pilgrims chased Drew Anderson from the hill by scoring seven runs in the first two innings and continued to mash the ball to the tune of 15 hits. Joe Knapp had a pair of doubles, and a double each were claimed by Hayden Skirvin, Connor Flynn and Ike Kastner.
Chase Peters picked up the win, but needed Jordan Scheetz to clean up the mess in the seventh.
Wawasee’s JV squad used an eight-run fourth inning to trump Plymouth, 10-5. The Warriors clubbed 16 hits, with three each from Aaron Voirol and Austin Yoder and two each from Colin Beer, Jordan Elliott and Caleb Dingeldein. Voirol picked up the pitching win for the Warriors, now 6-12 on the season.
