On the mound: Tanner Jones went three innings, striking out three, allowing four walks, two hits, and four earned runs. Kyle Konkle pitched the other four innings, striking out five and allowing just two hits.
The Pacers then bounced back with a 2-1 win over South Dearborn.
Switzerland County garnered four hits on the night, with Bob Tressler’s single and Kyle Konkle’s double highlighting a two-run first inning that would prove to be all the Pacers would need to earn the win.
