CHS Baseball beats Griffith, falls at LaPorte

Back to Front Page


The Chesterton baseball split a split doubleheader, dropping the important one and winning the “marque” game.

The Trojans fell 5-0 in Duneland Athletic Conference play in a rescheduled tilt on Saturday morning at LaPorte, but rebounded to beat Griffith later that afternoon 3-2 at RailCats Stadium in Gary.

In the morning, Slicer starter Connor Podkul kept the Trojans at bay as he allowed just four hits and struck out 11 in getting the win.

LaPorte scored a solo run in the first and then added three more in the fifth against Chesterton starter Jordan Peterson who struck out six in the loss.

Offensively, Alex Olson led the Trojans with two hits.

In the afternoon, Chesterton scored a solo run in the bottom of the seventh to pick up the win.

Pinch-hitter Zach Hise started the frame with a single just before Bobby Humphreys put down a sacrifice bunt that moved pinch-runner Josh Jaeger into scoring position. Nate Majcher ripped the first pitch from Griffith starter Calvin Bonewitz into left-center field for the game-winner.

The Panthers built a 2-0 lead early against Chesterton starter Alex Olson who allowed just four hits and struck out four in five innings of work.

The Trojans tied the game with an RBI double in the first inning by Jordan Peterson and a fourth-inning RBI single for Zach Rochowiak in the fourth.

Humphreys worked the final two innings on the mound for Chesterton to get the win as he allowed just one hit and struck out one.
