Post 6 losesin Patriot tourney

PLYMOUTH — Kokomo Post 6 couldn’t come back from a two-run deficit in losing to Mishawaka Post 161 2-1 here in the Plymouth Patriot Tournament at Bill Nixon Field in American Legion baseball action Saturday.

Mishawaka scored both of its runs in the second inning, while Kokomo (12-10) came back with a run in the fifth inning as Eli Grimes drove in the Sixers’ run.

Conner Milligan and Jesse Broomfield each had two hits in leading Kokomo. Milligan had a single and double and Broomfield added two singles. Grimes doubled.

Jake McMain was the losing pitcher. McMain allowed two earned runs on five hits and one walk, while fanning four in seven-inning complete game.

“It was a very well played game on both sides,” Kokomo coach Don Andrews said. “We out hit them six to five, and neither team committed an error. Both pitchers pitched a complete game.”

Kokomo played a late game Saturday night against a team from Ontario, Canada.

Catchings leadsFever over Sun

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tamika Catchings had 22 points and six steals to help the Indiana Fever beat the Connecticut Sun 78-66 on Saturday night.

Briann January had 14 points and seven rebounds, and Shavonte Zellous also scored 14 points for the injury-plagued Fever. The defending WNBA champions won their third straight game after dropping seven of eight to start the season.

The Fever took advantage after Connecticut’s star player, reigning league MVP Tina Charles, was ejected early in the fourth quarter. The center picked up two technical fouls after she disagreed with a call and was sent to the locker room.

Charles finished with 14 points. She scored a season-high 30 points the previous time the teams met, a 73-61 win for the Sun on June 12.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
