PLYMOUTH â€” The woes of the big inning continued to haunt Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims Monday night as they dropped an NLC battle with Northridge by a 9-5 final.

KNOX â€”Â John Glenn traveled to Knox Monday night and dismantled the Redskins in five innings by a 10-0 score.
Glennâ€™s Justin Gierlowski threw his second no-hitter of the season and recorded his third double-digit strikeout game with 10 ks.
