)Plymouth, IN) - The Slicers have advanced to the semi-finals in the high school baseball sectionals.
La Porte defeated South Bend Riley last night 7 to 0.
That’s 12 victories in a row for the 23-6 Slicers.
Our very own voice of the Slicers, Chip Jones, believes the odds of a sectional title are in La Porte’s favor.
“Our pitching’s been good. We’ve been getting really good on defense. We had a little bit of a defensive slump the last couple of weeks but getting better and we’ve been moving the ball pretty well,” he said.
The Slicers play again at Plymouth on Saturday against Mishawaka, which defeated Plymouth last night.
A win Saturday would put them in the championship game on Monday against either South Bend Adams or Michigan City.
