Portage upends CHS Baseball on Tuesday

Back to Front Page


Chestertonís starting pitching has carried them to a solid start to the season, but Tuesday night Portage had an answer.

The Indians pounded out 10 hits and took advantage of nine walks in picking up a 10-0 Duneland Athletic Conference victory.

Leading 1-0 heading into the fourth inning, the Indians exploded for four runs and chased Trojan starter Jake Post. A three-run double off the bat of Gabe Acevedo to straight away centerfield was the big blow.

Chesterton never got the bats going to make a comeback as Zach Jenks was the only Trojan to get a hit (two singles).
