Chillicothe benefited from some bad Lafayette decisions and
errors to beat the Irish 4 to 1 in St Joseph. Chillicothe loaded the
bases in the first inning when Derrick Hussey reached first base by
a fielders choice followed by a Lafayette error to give Chillicothe
an early 2 to 0 lead. The Hornets scored twice more in the seventh
when Bobby Penniston scored on a fielder’s choice followed by a
Tyler Long RBI single.
Lafayette scored once in the seventh but relief pitcher
Penniston pitched out of a jam for the save. Troy Toedebusch went 4
2/3 innings, striking out two, walking two and giving up no runs.
Penniston gave up just one hit in 2 1/3 innings.
