Rochester rallies past Plymouth

May 31, 2011

PLYMOUTH — They say hitting is contagious, but once the Rochester bats caught fire Monday, it was downright virulent.
Rochester cranked out nine hits for eight runs in the fifth and sixth innings, tying up the Pilgrims at 6-all on a Chad Miller grand slam during a five-run fifth, then taking the lead for the first and last time with a three-run sixth as they ousted host Plymouth 9-8 in a Class 3A Sectional 19 semifinal at Bill Nixon Field.
The Zebras ultimately dropped the final 8-0 against Marian, which advanced through John Glenn in the other semifinal Monday morning.

Krugh and Marian shut out John Glenn 4-0 in Plymouth semi

May 31, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Mishawaka Marian opened and closed the door on John Glenn all in one inning.
The Knights got off to a bumpy start as two errors and a base hit loaded the bags with no outs in the top of the first, but Marian ace Taylor Krugh came right back at Glenn batters for three straight strikeouts to wiggle off the hook, and the Falcons barely threatened again in a 4-0 Marian win at the Class 3A Plymouth Baseball Sectional at Bill Nixon Field Monday.
