IMLAY CITY — The Imlay City varsity baseball team saw to it that the Blue Water Area Conference championship would belong to them when the final out was registered, earning a 10-5 win at the expense of perennial title contender Richmond last Wednesday afternoon.
With the decision, Imlay City raises its mark to 12-1 when pitted against BWAC rivals. The Spartans also improved to 21-3 overall.
"The team came out hitting from the start," Imlay City Coach John Forti said. "The boys were fired up and wanted this game bad," he noted.
Devon Wiegers (three singles, three runs and one RBI), Eric Harbin (three singles), Adam Van Dyk (two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored), Ryan Pitt (a double, a homer and two runs scored) proved Imlay City's top offensive threats that day.
Pitt was the winning Imlay City pitcher. He allowed four hits, struck out 13 and issued five walks along the way.
