Sandwich 250x250

The Sandwich Indians exploded for 16 runs on 12 hits and actually had a come from behind win over Lisle 16-1.  The Lisle Lions had scored a single run in the 1st inning to take the early lead, but Sandwich had 5 runs in the 3rd and 10 in the 4th to win easily against one of their Interstate 8 Conference foes.

Before we go over the offensive stats let’s talk about a great pitching performance by the Indians Tim Gipe.  Gipe gave up that solo run in the first on a groundout and allowed nothing after that.  He struck out 5, walked just one Lion hitter and allowed just 3 hits in the game.  He threw all 5 innings on the night.

Several Indians had big nights at the plate.  Leadoff hitter Jackson Murphy went 3-4 on the night, scoring 3 runs and driving in 1 as well.  Jaron Schiera was 2-3 and drove in 4 big runs while scoring once as well.  Schiera and Jackson Murphy each doubled for the Indians.  Wyatt Murphy and Gipe each drove in 2 runs while Austin Ford and Devin Carrera each had 2 hits.
