The Eagles led 8-1 entering the seventh inning before they busted out the lumber. Busco scored eight runs in the final inning, paced by three home runs.
Kyle Owen picked up the win going five and one-thirds innings. He gave up only one hit, struckout four but surrendered five walks and two hit batsmen. Herendeen closed out the game striking out three Warriors and gave up a hit.
Saturday’s first game the Eagles posted a 3-1 lead after three innings but gave up four runs to the Jets in the top of the fourth on three errors. Farlow hit a two run homer in the bottom of the seventh but it was not enough for the Eagles as they fell 6-4. Herendeen went the distance for the Eagles giving up six runs but only two of them were earned. He scattered seven hits and walked one while striking out five.
Game two saw the Jets fly out to a four to nothing lead after one inning. Again Churubusco couldn’t put together a rally. They managed two in the second on three straight walks and a single by Alan Meeks. One run was added in the fourth after Layne Fulk reached on a fielder’s choice and a double by Chris Sims. In the fifth inning Turner hit a home run for the Eagles’ final run. Farlow pitched five innings giving up seven runs (5ER), nine hits, four walks and three strikeouts. Spencer Shroyer finished the last two for the Eagles, giving up one hit and striking out two.
Churubusco will close out the season at home with games Thursday against Central Noble at 5:00 p.m., Saturday F.W. Canterbury at 11:00 a.m. and Monday will host Angola at 5 p.m. in a rescheduled game.
