Indians drop game to Plainfield North
MINOOKA — What started out as a strong game for Minooka baseball Wednesday suddenly turned sour, as the Indians gave up 11 runs to Plainfield North after the fourth inning, losing the second game of a three game series 11-3 to the Tigers.
It was a pitching duel early, as Minooka senior Kevin Ruff and Plainfield North junior Brendan Miller traded zero spots in the first two innings. After another shutout inning in the top of the third inning from Ruff, Miller ran into trouble in the bottom half, as the Indians had loaded the bases up with only one out in the inning. After running Minooka catcher TJ Condon to an 0-2 count, Miller threw a pitch past catcher Zach Trusk, bringing in Tyler Thorson from third to give the Indians the early 1-0 advantage. That’s all Minooka could muster in that half inning, as a base running error led to a double play turned by Plainfield North on the next pitch.
“We made a couple errors early today,” Minooka head coach Jeff Petrovic said. “We killed ourselves on the base paths today.”
