We’ve got a crosstown battle on the diamond as the Redwings of Benet Academy visit the Huskies of Naperville North
Bottom 1 with a man on 2nd Naperville North’s Ryan Yurcus is able to spray one out into right field and Tanner Mally would come into score to give the Huskies an early 1-0 lead
Top 2nd now and the Rediwings look to respond… Jackson Bayer smashes one up the middle and it just gets by the shortstop, Ryan Radek would score from 2nd to tie the game at 1
Bottom of the 4th and North’s Cole McManus is able to tomahawk one out into deep right field, Patrick Graham would score and McManus would end up at 3rd with a triple. 2-1 North
After a passed ball allowed McManus to score the Huskies are still in business and Jake Banas crushes one deep to left that hits the base of the wall. Two runs would score for the huskies and they now lead 5-1
Top 4 and The Redwings were not fazed, Jackson Bayer hits a bloop single to left to score Stephen Dabrowski, Benet down 5-2
