ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

IMS moved two games above .500 thanks to a two-game sweep of their home tournament, the IMS Classic held on June 24. IMS came away with victories over Danville (16-7) and Keokuk (5-4).

In the opener against Danville, IMS took a 2-0 lead behind RBIs from starting pitcher Isaiah Swantz and Cole Yoder. Danville responded in the bottom half of the inning with three of their own against Swantz, but IMS would respond.

IMS scored twelve runs over the next three innings, then added two more in the six, to build an insurmountable lead over Danville.

“Once we had been through the order once, we really started hitting well and really started to be aggressive hitting and aggressive on the bases. A lot of guys came through with hits. I felt like we’ve been hitting the ball better this week and that continued today,” Hershberger said.

However, with double-digit leads heading into the bottom of both the fifth and sixth innings, IMS was not able to shorten the game and had to play all seven innings.
