County League Baseball: Lemont earns extra-inning win

Calvin Sichler was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to plate the winning run in the eighth inning in Lemont’s 4-3 win over Spring Mills on Thursday.

The Ducks loaded the bases on three straight singles before Sichler took the pitch to win the game.

Erik Kempton’s two-run single gave the Braves (0-5) an early lead, and after the Ducks (4-3) surged into the lead Brandon Martz’s RBI single in the seventh forced estra innings.

Zach Smeal earned the win in relief, and Braves reliever Tyler Myers took the loss.
