ELKHART 18, Mabank 4
In its final game of the I-20 Classic Saturday, the third-ranked Elkhart baseball team could’ve packed things in before ever recording an out in the first inning.
That’s because the Elks scored eight runs before recording that first out and 11 total in the first inning en route to an 18-4 drubbing of Mabank at Van High School.
Despite pulling their starters after the second inning, the Elks still managed to put up seven runs in the final three frames.
Elkhart (14-3, 1-0) returns to District 19-2A action today, when they travel to rival Westwood. Action is expected to begin at 7 p.m.
