IMS played Montezuma in a non-conference game Thursday night at IMS. The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the fourth inning as IMS scored 4 runs getting RBIs from Nick Yutzy, Drake Brezina, Caleb Yoder, and Isaiah Swantz. IMS scored one more run in the 5th inning before added 3 more runs in the sixth inning on a SAC fly by Reggie Borntrager and a 2 RBI single by Caleb Yoder to make the score 8-0. Blake Bontrager got the win on the mound for IMS pitching all seven innings allowing 4 hits and striking out 6 batters. Caleb Yoder led IMS at the plate with 2 hits and 3 RBIs in the game. Cole Ours, Nick Yutzy, Drake Brezina, Cole Yoder, and Reggie Borntrager all had hits for IMS. “Our pitching and defense was outstanding all game. Blake did a great job of throwing strikes and we made a lot of great defensive plays behind him to keep Montezuma from getting any base runners past second base,” said Coach Danny Hershberger. With the win IMS is now 4-3 on the season and will next play at home on Monday against New London.
