The Sister Bay Bays were able to outlast and outscore the West Jacksonport Ports 6-2 on an cloudy overcast day in Jacksonport on 105.1 The GOAT.
Tom Sawyer started off the scoring for Sister Bay right away in the top of the first inning, singling into left field to score Laughlin from second base. Sam Forkert was the starting pitcher for Sister Bay, as he was dominant throughout the beginning of the game, blanking the Ports until the sixth inning.
In the third, it was Spencer Krause singled to center field to bring home Laughlin again, to extend the Bays lead to 2-0. Laughlin would score once again in the 6th inning, as Tom Sawyer got the RBI, his second of the game, making the lead 3-0.
Jaeger Brusky would give West Jacksonport two runs in the sixth off of a double to the right-center gap off of the new Sister Bay pitcher Matt Hect.
Sister Bay would put the game out of reach in the ninth inning when the tempers would begin to flare, as Spencer Krause would single, and the runner Tom Sawyer would score on an error by the center fielder. Hect would double, scoring Krause to make it 5-2, and a wild pitch would bring home another runner to make the final score 6-2.
