Upstart Bison Now Ailing in Skid

(New Buffalo, MI) - The New Buffalo High School baseball team dropped below the .500 mark on the season after pounded in both games of a doubleheader at home on Tuesday.


The losses to Michigan Lutheran were the latest in a six game skid containing just one victory for the once upstart Bison.


New Buffalo (8-9-1) lost to the Titans 12-1 and 18-3.


Gio Sanchez-Perez was the starting pitcher for the Bison in the first game, which was competitive until the fifth inning when Michigan Lutheran went up 8-0 after scoring five runs.


The Titans led off the inning with a triple to right field and a hard hit single.   The next batter walked then another run scored on a too hot to handle line drive off the glove of third baseman Max Nikkel.


Sam Wendell-Suppa, who took the mound in the fourth inning, walked another hitter then two more runs scored on an infield error.


The final run of the inning for the Titans resulted from a wild pitch.


New Buffalo came back to score a run after Nicholas Wolfe reached base on a catcher interference with the batter call by the home plate umpire. Wolfe advancing to third base after the next two batters made outs was driven home on a sharply hit single to left field by Axel Rodriguez.


Another single from Ethan Lijewski followed but the next hitter ended the inning with a strikeout.


Michigan Lutheran (12-7) scored four more times in the final inning pitched by Wolfe, who walked four batters but showed good potential.


New Buffalo dropped to 5-6-1 in conference play while the Titans advanced to 8-2 in the conference.


The Bison scored just three runs while giving up 35 runs in their previous three losses against Lawrence and Our Lady of the Lake. 


The last victory for New Buffalo was a 5-2 win against Lawrence.
