The Chargers (2-3) jumped out to a 3-1 lead after four innings until a 7-run fifth blew the door wide open, capped by Zach Girard's 2-run homer.

Fabian Gutierrez also drilled an RBI double for the Chargers while Chase Bloch went 2-for-4 and Sam Ray (2-for-5) drove in 3 runs.

Hampshire 10, Westminster Christian 3: Errors are what allowed the Whip-Purs (2-1) to jump on the Warriors early for 6 runs in the first two innings in a nonconference win. RJ Consigny doubled in 2 runs in the second while Trey Schramm (2-for-4) and Michael Kruse (2-for-5) each had an RBI as well. Westminster's Tyler Mamrot (2-for-4) and Ian Merlak (3-for-4) accounted for all of the Warriors' hits (1-5) but the rest of the lineup was stymied by Hampshire pitcher Kyle Rutkowski, who pitched 5 ⅓ innings and gave up 6 hits on 3 runs (all earned) with 3 strikeouts and 3 walks.

Streamwood 9, Hoffman Estates 2: Chad Caminitti personally put a stamp on the Sabres' 7-run nonconference win. Caminitti pitched 4 innings with a winning line of 4 hits, 1 earned run, 3 strikeouts and a walk but was just as dominant at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a double and 2 RBI. Zach Campbell also doubled in a run as the Sabres (2-2) scored 4 in the first and never looked back.

St. Edward 3, Westmont 3 (tie): Jake LaFrenz (3-for-3) walked twice and Jack Tierney was 2-for-4 with an RBI, but the Green Wave, who outhit Westmont 13-6, could only come away with a tie.

Elk Grove 9, Bartlett 2: A 6-run second inning was the difference in a nonconference loss for the Hawks (0-2). Joey Roberson accounted for the lone RBI for Bartlett.

Prospect 7, Cary-Grove 4: Despite a late rally, the Knights' 7-0 lead was too much for the Trojans (2-3) to overcome in a nonconference loss. C-G, which outhit Prospect 9-6, rallied with 4 runs in the final three innings behind the bats of Dean Christakes (2-for-4), Matt Sutherland (2-for-3, RBI), Andrew Splitt (2-for-4) and George Hartke (2-for-2, RBI).

Carmel 8, Huntley 2: The Red Raiders (2-2-1) trailed by as many as 7 runs early on in a nonconference loss to the Corsairs. Carmel jumped out to a 7-0 lead after two innings of play and Mark Skonieczny accounted for each Red Raider RBI in the third and fifth innings.

Powell County 5, Burlington Central 1: In South Carolina, John Murphy's RBI single in the sixth was the only bright spot for the Rockets (3-1), who had only 4 hits and fell behind 5-0 after three innings in their first loss of the spring. Bryan Cynova also tripled for the Rockets.
