CALUMET CITY | After battling bad weather all season, T.F. North decided to enjoy the good weather and get out early Friday night to get some extra work in before their night game with Bloom Township. It paid off big for the Meteors.

T.F. North used four runs in the first and seven runs in the second to jump out to an 11-3 lead after two innings on their way to a 17-7 win over the Blazing Trojans in six innings. DeAngelo Mitchell had three hits and three runs for the Meteors, while Meteor leadoff man Patrick Robinson was 2-for-2 with four runs scored.

"I was just trying to get back in a rhythm because I've been dropping my shoulder the last couple days," Mitchell said. "The practice before the game was worth it, because we came out here an entirely different team."

Bloom Township (7-8), who defeated Thornwood 13-7 earlier Friday night, committed four errors over the first two innings to help the Meteor offense. The Blazing Trojans first three batters all reached and came around to score to give Bloom an early 3-0 lead. Blazing Trojan starter Sebastian Torres only went two innings, allowing six hits and 10 runs. Bloom had to travel to T.F. North after the Thornwood win.

"We booted the ball around the first couple of innings and it was uncharacteristic of us," Bloom coach Job Gunderson said. "We gutted it out the rest of the way but it was too far in the hole for us. With losing so many games, we saw a day that we could get two games in so we wanted to do it."

T.F. North (6-12) was on a seven game losing streak and came out of their slump in a big way. Meteor starter Miseal Morales pitched four strong innings for T.F. North and was able to settle down early after giving up the three first inning runs.

"I was trying to just throw strikes and let them hit it," Morales said. "Let the defense help me out. At the plate, we swung a lot, and we had been practicing swinging."

T.F. North was looking for a win to go along with the good weather, and coach Mike Kosiara was all smiles after his team's victory.

"They made mistakes and we took advantage of all their mistakes," Kosiara said. "We were out here earlier today, and they had a game earlier. Today they came out swinging the bats. The extra time before the game had a lot to do with it. And the weather."
