Tonight’s game was expected to be a defensive battle between Macomb and Beardstown but that expectation went out of the window early in this ball game.  Both teams had hot bats tonight and their were more defensive mistakes than normal by both teams.  Honestly, we saw a true championship style ballgame between these two teams as they battled back and forth all night long.  But Macomb finally found a way to break the game open in the bottom of the 5th inning and held on for the 14-9 win.  Macomb’s Ben Higgins went 3-4 at the plate tonight with a single, 2 doubles, and had 2 RBI’s.  For Beardstown, Chase Piehler he pitched a great game on the mound and also went 2-2 at the plate with 2 singles and 2 runs scored.  Macomb will move on to the Sectional in Salem this weekend.
