Co-Lin 9, ICC 6

The Wolves found ways to score throughout the first game of day, as Co-Lin plated in runs in the first, fourth, sixth, seventh, and eighth inning to secure the victory.

Co-Lin’s CJ Estave led off the ball game with a solo homerun after he blasted the third pitch of his at bat over the left field fence. Later in the inning back-to-back loaded the bases and Austin O’Flynn was hit by a pitch to give Co-Lin a 2-0 lead.

ICC rallied back in the bottom of the second with a pair of singles and a double that plated four runs.

That lead was stretched in the bottom of the third when a double pushed two more runs across. Itawamba led the Wolves 6-2.

Jaylyn Williams cut into that lead in the top of the fourth. Williams hit a line drive homer to center field that scored Mathew Mordecai and Blake Estabrook. Co-Lin trailed by just one after four complete.

Kody Smith gave the Wolves the lead in the sixth with a single to right field that plated Estabrook and Kyle Whittington. An error in the seventh added another run for Co-Lin, and a sacrifice bunt from Tyler McLeod in the top of the eight scored the Wolves’ final run.

Estave led the Wolves with three hits in four at bats. Smith, Williams, O’Flynn, Whittington, and J.T. Wright added one each. Smith led Co-Lin with two RBIs.

Austin Carpenter and Cody Pate led ICC as the only multi-hit players. Pate led the Indians with four RBIs.
