Lake Zurich's Jones jolts Antioch
Antioch couldn't keep up with Jones.
Nick Jones, to be more specific.
Jones crushed 3 home runs in 3 at-bats to key Lake Zurich's 12-7 North Suburban Conference crossover victory over the Sequoits on Friday.
In the process, Jones, who rolled up a total of 6 home runs this week, drove in 5 runs.
As if all that weren't enough, Jones was also the winning pitcher of record. He pitched 4 innings and gave up just 2 earned runs while allowing no walks.
The Bears also got a home run from Dom DeMicco as well as a double from Austin Foote and 2 hits out of Joey Pizzolato.
Antioch cut its deficit to 8-7 after batting in the sixth, but Lake Zurich, which got its third win in a row to improve to 5-11, pulled away again with 4 runs in the bottom of the inning.
The Sequoits got 3 hits apiece from Adam Harvey and Cameron Slate and 2 hits apiece out of Colin Prather, Nick Muskat and Mitch Everett. Harvey, Muskat and Everett all had a double as did Matt DeJong.
Grayslake Central 6, Johnsburg 0: Grayslake Central got its second shutout in as many days as pitchers Jack Spicer, Erik Skutnik and Russell Lundius shared the mound and made sure a 4-0 first-inning lead held. Spicer officially got the win. He fanned 5 batters over 4 innings.
Kyle Clark paced Grayslake Central with 2 hits, including a double and 2 RBI in the first inning. Ryan Fontana also had a pair of hits and scored 2 runs.
Grant 12, Lake Forest 6: The Grant offense hit the ground running and didn't let up. The Bulldogs scored 5 runs in the first inning and finished with a total of 15 hits in their crossover victory.
