Chesaning completed the sweep over visiting Ovid-Elsie by winning the second game 10-0 in 6 innings. Michael James pitched the complete game shutout for the Indians and Jacob Turnwald had a great night, at the plate, going 7-8. Tonight we continued to play solid baseball in all phases of the game. I am very proud of our team because they keep grinding and working to get better everyday. These were two really big games for us to keep us in contention for the league title and the guys took care of business. We are 1 game behind New Lothrop and Durand, but we play Durand next Monday and Durand plays New Lothrop next Wednesday. So there is a lot of baseball to be played yet.

Jacob Turnwald 4-5 and 1 RBI
Jarrett Kelley 2-3 and scored 1 run
