A total of 14 Division I players and air-tight pitching was a key for the South in Saturday's IHSBCA North-South All-Star weekend at Wabash College.

The South won the first two games of the series, 7-3 and 13-0, with the North committing eight costly errors.

"They're pretty good. They didn't make any errors and their defense was outstanding," said Kankakee Valley's Doug Greenlee, who coached the North squad.

"They put the ball in play hard and their pitchers were pretty effective."

Today's Game 3, a wooden bat game, begins at 11 a.m. Boone Grove grad Dean Hill will throw the fourth, fifth and sixth innings.

"They have several rules in the series and one of them is the pitchers don't hit," Greenlee said. "And we've got some good pitchers from our area who can hit, but they couldn't."

Each player is allotted a maximum of three innings per game.

In the opener, Griffith's Jesse Smith pitched 2 2/3 innings, allowing three runs, one hit, walking five and fanning two.

Times Player of the Year Zach Plesac, from Crown Point, took the loss as he allowed four runs, struck out four, walked three and hit three batters in his three frames.

The nightcap saw Andrean's Zac Ryan pitch the seventh and eighth innings as his defense committed four errors. Ryan allowed eight runs, fanned three, walked three and gave up five hits.

Kyle Joyce (Hebron) pitched a scoreless ninth in relief.

Offensively, catcher Mike Crowley (Chesterton) went 1-for-1 on the day and scored a run; outfielder Joyce went 0-for-3 and second baseman Ryan Burvan (Lake Central) finished 1-for-4.
