Lakes (9-7) got on the board in the first inning when leadoff hitter Justin Corona drew a walk and advanced to third when Bryan Gross reached on an error by the shortstop. Sisk then homered over the right field fence to give the Eagles the lead.

Junior Chase Slota (3-1) started out strong on the mound, not allowing a hit through the first three innings. He ran into some problems in the fourth. He allowed 2 runs on 2 walks and a double.

But Lakes answered back with two in the bottom of the fourth. Sisk's bloop single into left plated the first run, and the second scored on a balk.

The Gators picked up two more runs in the fifth to make it 5-4, before junior Bill Morris came on in the seventh to earn his second save of the year. Crystal Lake South got two runners on, but Morris got a popout to third baseman Corona, who doubled off the runner at second base.

Corona had a good day at the plate, as well, going 1-for-2 with 2 walks and 2 runs scored.

Grayslake Central 6, Harvard 0: The visiting Rams won their fifth in a row, as Russ Lundius struck out eight and scattered 4 hits.

The nonconference game was scoreless heading into the sixth, but key hits from Anthony Fitzgerald and Matt Loeffl (2-run double) keyed a 4-run inning for Grayslake Central (13-8).

Mundelein 16, Zion-Benton 1: The visiting Mustangs hit the 20-win mark, as Luke Adams went 3-for-4 with 2 doubles and Ryan Hollander was 2-for-3 in the North Suburban Lake game.

Mundelein (20-1, 5-1) also got a triple from Luke Peterson and double from Reese Dolan. Nick Brune earned the win.
