H.S. Baseball: Cheatham, Elks win season opener

The third-ranked Elkhart baseball team opened up 2013 with an easy, 10-run rule victory over Timpson Tuesday.

Jacob Cheatham, only one day removed from the end of basketball season, was 3-for-3 at the plate with seven RBI, including a bases load triple on which he went on to score thanks to an error.

Jordan White got the win on the mound for the Elks (1-0), pitching five innings of two-hit ball while striking out eight. Hunter Parker pitched the sixth-and-final inning for Elkhart, fanning two.

Levi Smith was 2-for-2, while Jon-Michael Gordon was 2-for-4.

The Elks open up play in the Howard Estes Memorial Tournament at noon today against Rusk.
