Institute picked up their first win of the season as they beat Baileys Harbor in Door County League baseball Sunday. West Jacksonport and Sister Bay remained on top of the standings with wins and Washington Island moved two games above .500. Here are the details:
Institute batted around in the bottom of the first scoring six runs in a 7-3 win over Baileys Harbor. In his return from an injury, John Heimbecher went 3-for-4 and Simon Rabas and Kyle Volkmann each added two hits in the win. Josh Paul (1-3) went the first six for the win and Volkmann pitched the final three innings for the save. Derek Niedzwiecki, Phil Clark and Alex Janisee all had two hits for Baileys Harbor. Amadee Savard (1-1) took the loss.
West Jacksonport scored twice in the sixth for a three run lead and they held off Egg Harbor, 3-2. Eric Bley’s two-run single in the sixth inning turned out to be the deciding factor. Riley Cordier (5-0) scattered three hits and went the distance for the win.
