The Schererville Redhawks proved they could put a beating on the opposition when they out-scored it by nearly a four-to-one margin during the Cal Ripken Northern Indiana 11U 50/70 Championships held last week at the Schererville Baseball Complex.
But could they come through in the clutch in a tight game with their backs against the wall?
Down 2-1 and down to their final out against Mishawaka in the title game Monday, the Redhawks rallied to tie the game forcing an extra seventh inning.
After Schererville's defense sent Mishawaka down in order, it scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh for a 3-2 final.
The Redhawks advance to the Ohio Valley Regional to take place July 31-Aug. 1 in Galesburg, Ill.
