The Beardstown Tigers boys baseball team has a five-game win streak going, as their bats came alive this past week. The O&B ran their win streak to five straight after a slow 1-4 start by winning four contests this past week to bring their season mark to 6-4.
This past week they knocked off Pittsfield 6-3, Athens 10-2, and tripped up B/P-City in a twin-bill by scores of 13-2, 20-1.
BHS vs. Pittsfield
The O&B got five solid innings from Jacob Janssen who went five-innings allowing two runs, one earned, gave up four hits, walked three and struck out two. D’ante McWilliams finished up going the final two innings, walking four, striking out three, allowing one hit and one run.
Pittsfield scored one run in the bottom of the first, added one run in the fourth to lead 2-0. The hometowners then came alive as they put a six-spot on the board in the top of the sixth. Rick Dour delivered a two-run single, with Janssen, Markus Bauser and Chad McCombs also delivering RBI’s in the six-run uprising.
BHS stole four bases in the contest, three by Dour and one by Bauser. The Saukees helped the Tiger cause by committing five errors.
