After Saginaw Heritage scored a run in the first, Powers roared back with six in the bottom of the first, and then added five more runs in the second on its way to an 11-1 five-inning mercy-rule win. Grant Garman tossed a 1-hitter with 9 strikeouts to control the Hawks’ lineup. Jack Dawley led the offense with two hits and three RBI’s. Mason Luebke and Fischer Hendershot added two hits apiece for the Chargers.
Heritage took the nightcap 6-4, overcoming an early 2-0 deficit by scoring in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings–a 3-run sixth–providing the margin of victory. The teams played a little past sundown as they combined for a whopping thirty-one strikeouts, fourteen walks, and six errors. A competitive contest for sure, but it was not a thing of baseball beauty.
Powers Catholic moves to 6-5 overall (4-4 in the SVL) and now prepares to take on a strong Grand Blanc team this Thursday at home starting at 4 p.m.
