South Elgin lights it up against BataviaMay 29, 2015 1:10 AM
The Class 4A state baseball tournament seems to bring out the best in South Elgin’s offense. In 2014, the Storm entered the playoffs hitting .287 as a team only to erupt for 46 runs in 5 games to clinch a berth in the state finals, eventually finishing third. With five regulars from that squad back in the lineup this spring, No. 7 seed South Elgin entered Thursday’s playoff opener against No. 10 Batavia hitting .331 as a team, and the hits kept on coming, even against Bulldogs ace Evan Acosta. Batavia took a 2-0 lead in the third inning on Tyler Kledzik’s 2-run double off South Elgin starting pitcher Max Keough, but the Storm responded with a 5-run fourth inning, 3 more in the fifth and 1 in the sixth to win the regional semifinal 9-2 at Wheaton North.
