MYRTLE BEACH, SC – Ancilla’s Chargers were within striking distance until inning five but Kankakee Community College blew the game open at that point taking an 11-2 win over Ancilla in their final game at the Ripken Experience in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Jade Doyle got the start and kept the Chargers within one leaving in the third inning having given up three runs on just four hits and striking out two. Everett Krueger and Conner Adams each pitched two innings in relief of Doyle who was the hard luck loser. Kankakee plated six runs in the final two innings to put the game out of reach.
Michael Hirt had a pair of hits for the Chargers, Leighton Turnpaugh and Dante Granger had RBI’s in the Charger loss.
Ancilla now heads north with a weekend series scheduled for March 17 and 18 at Charger Field against St. Clair Community College.
