Mother Nature has made this week for Plymouth baseball a challenging one. Two conference games had to be rescheduled for later dates, including a Warsaw game that was supposed to be played a week ago, to be played on Saturday. On Thursday, chilly temperatures were part of the environment played at Bill Nixon Field, but the end result warmed up Plymouth fans who braved the weather conditions. Plymouth defeated Wawasee 9-3.
“Being off as many days as we were, I was glad to see our kids came in focused. (Senior) Richey Luva pitched well in these conditions. His leadership on the mound has been fun to watch. He keeps setting good examples for his teammates through his effort on the mound and at the plate.”, said Plymouth Head Coach Tony Plothow.
Luva went the distance for a third time this season, pitching 7 innings of baseball, allowing 3 runs on 12 hits.
The top four hitters in the Pilgrims line-up were responsible for scoring 7 of the 9 runs in the ballgame.
“Houston (Hodges), Conner (Flynn), Damon (Howe), and (Kyle) Cartwright have really done well getting on base. They have shown a lot of patience at the plate, getting themselves in hitting situations.”, added Plothow.
Plymouth improves to 7-3 (3-0) and will face Northwood tomorrow. A game to be heard on WTCA around 4:30pm.
