BOWERSTON – (Wed, Apr 28, 2021) The red-hot Rockets won for the sixth time in the last seven games defeating the TCC Saints 8-4 behind the strong pitching of sophomore Gaige Galigher. The Rockets established control early after falling behind 1-0 in the top of the first inning by hitting the Saints with a five run bottom of the first inning.

The Rockets hitting attack was led by Braylen Novak who lashed a double and single and Garson Imes who contributed a double. Ethan Myers and sophomore Nolan Caldwell each had two singles.

With the win, the Rockets moved into a dead tie for first place in the IVC North with Strasburg, who lost to Buckeye Trail last night. Both teams are 6-2 in conference play and will face each other in an IVC Showdown on Monday at Jim Monigold Field.

The Rockets also clinched first place in the OVAC 1-A division and will host a playoff game with an opponent and date to be determined.
