RUSSELL, Pa. – Hunter Alderson’s RBI groundout in the sixth inning proved to be the difference in Iroquois’ 3-2 win over Eisenhower.

Ben Burkhardt’s RBI groundout in the first inning put Iroquois on the board, with Eisenhower striking for both of its runs in the bottom of the frame, courtesy of Derek Childs and Johnny Palmieri, who drew back-to-back bases-loaded walks with two outs.

Joe Doverspike got the win in relief, tossing three scoreless innings.

Brok English was 3-for-3 at the plate for Eisenhower, while Shawn Pascuzzi was 2-for-3.

Garrett Jensen was the tough-luck loser, firing a complete-game, allowing two earned runs on just four hits, striking out seven, and walking two.
