Chesterton Baseball beats Valparaiso

Back to Front Page


The Chesterton baseball team pushed four runs across in the bottom of the first inning to complete a season sweep of arch-rival Valparaiso 5-3 on Thursday afternoon.

Nate Majcher’s two-run double in the first was the big blow as the Trojans took advantage of a Valparaiso error for an early lead.

A sixth-inning double by Austin Cooley plated the other Chesterton run in the win.

Offensively, Jordan Peterson and Justin Jenks had two hits each to lead the Trojans.

On the mound, Jake Post worked all seven innings, scattering eight hits and striking out six for the win.
