Plathe pitches BGHS to league win
Marcus Plathe hurled six strong innings to lead the Bishop Garrigan Golden Bears baseball squad to a 12-2, six-inning, Top of Iowa Conference victory over the West Hancock Eagles.
Plathe gave up two runs in the top of the first inning, one of them earned, but settled down after that. The slender right-hander allowed a total of four hits in the game while fanning 11 batters, walked four and hit a batter to earn the win on the bump.
The black-and-gold scored four runs in the bottom of the first frame when Brad Capesius struck out but reached on a passed ball, and Luke Bormann followed with a walk. Both runners scored easily on a booming double off the bat of Drake Buscherfeld.
