PLYMOUTH â€” In a battle of first-place NLC contenders it was Elkhart Memorial coming away the big winner Wednesday night at Bill Nixon Field, taking a 7-1 win over Plymouth.
The game turned out to have even more significance as Wawasee picked up their first NLC win over Warsaw putting the Chargers in sole possession â€” for the moment â€” of the top slot in the conference with a 6-2 record. Plymouth, NorthWood and Warsaw stand at 5-3, Northridge is a half game off the pace at 4-2.
â€śYou look out there on the board â€” seven in one inning,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Ryan Wolfe. â€śYou give up seven in one inning, and itâ€™s tough to come back from especially when you have two good pitchers going. I thought their pitcher (Jake Tucker) did a fantastic job of keeping us off balance, we hit some balls right at them. We couldnâ€™t muster up any consistency at the plate tonight and thatâ€™s a credit to him. Our plan is to hit a lot tomorrow at practice.â€ť
