WABASH 5, TIPPECANOE VALLEY 3
The top of the Apache order did the requisite damage needed to beat the Vikings Saturday.
Seven of the eight Wabash hits came from the top four hitters, two each from Trenton Daughtry, Robert Irgang and Kallen Kelsheimer and another hit from Blake Gribben. The four combined for four runs and four RBIs in the win.
Valley had Tanner Trippiedi collect three hits, a run scored and an RBI and Wes Melanson and Russ Paxton both drive in runs.
Joe Leland worked 6.2 innings to get the win, striking out six while Trippiedi took the loss in five innings on the bump. Daughtry earned the save in getting the final out.
WAWASEE 8, WEST NOBLE 6
The Warriors hung at least one run on the scoreboard in the first six innings to beat its sectional rivals in Ligonier.
Wawasee took advantage of West Noble’s three errors to the tune of three runs, and six of its eight runs were unearned in the game. Carter Woody was 3-for-4 at the plate with an RBI for Wawasee, Brandon Baker drove in two, Tony Garcia had two hits and an RBI, and Parker Young crossed the plate three times.
Takota Weigold tripled and scored twice while Alex Ramirez had three hits and a pair of runs scored to highlight the Chargers’ output.
Grant Brooks gave up just one hit in 2.2 innings of relief to get the win for Wawasee. Josh Slabaugh allowed six runs on eight hits in the start. Bryan Bowman gave up four runs in taking the loss for West Noble.
In the JV contest, Wawasee used four RBIs from Charlie Doss to get past West Noble, 8-3. Lucas Ringler added a hit, two walks and three runs scored, and the combination of Riley Turner, Zach Smith and Carr Reinhard struck out eight on the hill.
WARSAW 10, FORT WAYNE CARROLL 2
FORT WAYNE CARROLL 4, WARSAW 2
Game one was all Warsaw, while game two saw the Chargers take over.
Liam Patton had himself a game in the opener, homering among his four hits. Patton drove in two and scored twice in the showing. Matt Shoemaker added two hits and a pair of runs scored while Nico Luna drove in a pair for the Tigers.
Mason Reber was effective on the mound to get the win, going seven innings and striking out just two, but limited Carroll to just six hits.
In game two, both teams collected six hits, but Carroll was able to execute just a little better. Micah Fretz had two RBIs while Sebastian Kuhns and Eddie Bransfield each drove in a run.
Patton and Noah Burgh each had two hits and both Joey Springer and Jacob Hutcherson drove in runs for the Tigers. Warsaw, however, left eight runners on base, largely due to the work of Bryce Ginder, who got the win for the Chargers in holding the Tigers to the two runs in 6.1 innings. Cam Niedens got the save in a spotless two-thirds of an inning.
Ian Glogovsky gave up all four runs in three innings of work for Warsaw in taking the loss.
