With DeKalb softball trailing Morris by a run in the bottom of the seventh Tuesday, Sarah Friedlund hit a two-run home run to give the Barbs a 4-3 win at home.

Morris led, 3-1, until the seventh when Hannah Walter doubled and eventually scored on an error. Lindsey Costliow reached base and Friedlund homered on a 2-2 pitch to win it. Friedlund had three hits while Walter and Jessica Townsend each had two.

Offense carries Sycamore: Abby Foulk gave up only two earned runs and struck out four as Sycamore got a 8-3 win over Yorkville.

Jasmyne Taylor was 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBIs while Tristyn Criswell went 2 for 3. Lyndsey Coddington finished 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI and Foulk went 2 for 4 with two RBIs.

“We scored in four different innings and kept the pressure on Yorkville to match us every inning,” Sycamore coach Jill Carpenter said.

Sycamore is 8-12 and 2-5 in the NI Big 12 East.

Kaneland shuts out Rochelle: Ellissa Eckert threw a three-hitter and Allyson O’Herron went 3 for 3 with a double and two RBIs as Kaneland won, 9-0.

Cogs edged by Marengo: Genoa-Kingston couldn’t generate any offense at home against Marengo in a 3-0 loss.

Paige Keegan had two hits and Kailyn Cygan had one for the Cogs (11-4, 3-3 Big Northern Conference East).

Indian Creek rebounds:
After being no-hit by Serena on Monday, Indian Creek got its hitting back on track in an 11-1 win over Serena in six innings.

David Boehne (4-0) went six innings and struck out seven while allowing one run to get the win while Dillon Martenson was 3 for 4 with four RBIs.

The Timberwolves (7-10-1, 7-6-1 Little Ten) practiced early Tuesday morning after Monday’s loss.

“It paid off because we did a nice job of making some adjustments, hitting the ball up the middle,” Indian Creek coach Joe Piekarz said.

Barbs fall to Yorkville: DeKalb lost to Yorkville, 8-6, on the road.

Jared Johnson was 2 for 3 with a triple, an RBI and two runs scored while Ryan Metsker pitched five innings and had one strikeout.

DeKalb scored four runs in the second to tie the game, 5-5, but Yorkville pulled away late.

“We gave up a five-spot in the first,” DeKalb coach Jake Howells said. “Ryan hung in there, made the adjustment.”

Hiawatha crushes LaMoille: Hiawatha defeated LaMoille, 15-3, in five innings. The Hawks recorded 12 hits, including three from Nick Doolittle, who had four RBIs. Taylor Edwards went 2 for 2 with three RBIs.
