The first time Macomb and Beardstown squared off in this tournament, you could not have asked for a more exciting ballgame.  Tonight was round 2 between these teams and it lived up to full expectations.  There was a lot of strong defensive play as well as a lot of strong hits at the plate.  Macomb showed their bats early on in the game by getting 3 runs on 4 hits in the first inning.  Beardstown did not really answer back until they plated 3 runs in the top of the 5th inning as well to tie the game a 4-4.  Then, in the bottom of the 6th inning a walk, a error, and a ground out put runners at second and third with only one out.  Ben Higgins stepped up to the plate and on the third pitch he saw, sent it out into center field for the game winning single.  Macomb wins this one 5-4 and forces the “If” game with Beardstown on Monday night at 7 pm.  Ben Higgins was the player of the night for Macomb as he went 2-3 with the game winning single.  Beardstown’s Avery Quigley once again proved to be a very impressive defensive ballplayer as he took away multiple base hits from Macomb tonight.
