BEECHER VS ILLINOIS LUTHERAN BOYS BASEBALL BY JOHN SMIERCIAK
BEECHER | Beecher's Justin Roggemann was waiting for the fastball, and Roggemann got the fastball.
Roggemann scored the winning run on a passed ball to give the Bobcats a 2-1 win over River Valley Conference rival and Times No. 3 Illinois Lutheran. In a 1-1 game, Roggemann started the bottom of the seventh with a lead off double before coming in to score after a Jared Buzan pitch sailed high on Chargers catcher Dylan Gould. With the win, Beecher remained undefeated at 6-0 overall and 4-0 in RVC play.
"Coach (Brandon DuBois) told me to be ready for a bad pitch," Roggemann said. "I just saw the chance and took it."
Beecher (6-0, 4-0) started the scoring with one run in the bottom of the first. Beecher lead off hitter Cameron Morgan walked to start the bottom of the first then later came around to score on a Dallas Saddler sacrifice. Illinois Lutheran (5-1, 1-1) answered with one run in the third on a Gould RBI single that scored Evan Henschel.
