Daily Herald report

The streak -- Mundelein's, anyway -- is over.

Lake Zurich won for a second straight day as the Bears delivered the Mustangs their first loss this season at home, 4-2 on Thursday.

"No doubt, undefeated Mundelein has one of the top hitting lineups in the state," Bears coach Gary Simon said. "Mike Mulder was outstanding."

Mulder pitched 513 innings, allowing 4 hits and striking out six. Mike Shastany got the save, killing a sixth inning Mustangs rally.

For the second day in a row, Nick Jones homered in the first inning. Anthony Drago followed with a homer. The third Bears home run was hit by Dom DeMicco in the fifth.

Lake Zurich improves their record to 4-11 and 2-3 in the North Suburban Lake.

Grayslake Central 7, Woodstock 0: Kevin Peloza tossed his third consecutive shutout going 6 innings and striking out 8. Peloza allowed 2 hits and improved his record to 3-0.

"Kevin keeps getting better with every start," Rams coach Troy Whalen said. "One shutout in a season is impressive but to have three with more games to go is impressive."

The Rams (12-8) slapped nine singles over the game led by Justin Allen who had 3 hits.

Wauconda 3, Grant 2: In the North Suburban Prairie game, Wauconda was led offensively by Austin Swenson, who homered, and Ryan Geary, who hit 2-for-3. James Holub got the win on the mound for Wauconda.

Stevenson 9, Loyola 5: The Patriots' Jake Schnierow pitched 5 innings, allowing 5 hits, 2 runs and striking out 2 as the Patriots improve their record to 8-6.

Willie Bourbon (double, 2 RBI), Austin Black (2 runs), Jimmy Marchese (2 RBI) and Joey Morris all had 2 hits for Stevenson. Mitchell Goll and Eli Greenspon both had doubles.

Grayslake North 10, Johnsburg 6: Adam Gomski, JP Zalewski and Alex Alvarez all belted doubles for the Knights (7-4, 4-3 FVC Fox).

Lakes 11, Round Lake 0: Nick Seketa threw a 1-hit shutout, the second consecutive one-hit shutout that Lakes pitchers have thrown.

Key hitters for the Eagles were Ryan Burnett (2-3, 2 runs), Dan Jackson (2-3, 2 runs, 2 RBI) and Billy Morris (2-4, RBI). Lakes improves their record to 5-11 and 3-3 in the North Suburban Prairie Division.

Libertyville 9, Racine Park (Wis.) 0: Multiple Wildcats had extra base hits in this game. Matt Vogt, Kevin Calamari and Dereck Ioos belted doubles. Noah Greenberg tripled, and Evan Skoug slammed a home run for Libertyville. Jason Buss got the win on the mound.
