Print Article

BELOIT - The Turner Trojans made it a perfect 9-0 Friday afternoon as they defeated visiting Edgerton 12-11 in a wild contest.

The Trojans trailed 11-5 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning when they exploded for seven runs to take a 12-11 lead, an advantage that would stand up when Grant Revels held the Crimson Tide scoreless over the final two innings.

Kenny Draeving was also stellar in relief, allowing two unearned runs after the Tide had great success early in the game offensively.

It was a sloppy affair, with the teams combining to commit 10 errors, five from each side.

Drew Ries went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI, Keegan Marquardt finished with two hits, and Jack Scharlau drove in three runs to pace the Trojans offense.

Jayden Johnson went 4-for-5 with a pair of RBI to lead Edgerton.

The Trojans will host Jefferson Tuesday.
