Mundelein meets the challenge against Grayslake North
May 27, 2015 10:45 PM -
In a potential one-and-done baseball game against upset-minded Grayslake North, Mundelein's Reese Dolan wasn't done, even if his regional semifinal start lasted just five batters. "It was a nightmare," said Dolan, who walked three batters and retired only one before going to play right field. "But my teammates picked me up. I can always count on them." Dolan picked himself up -- and his teammates. And when the junior sprinted off the field following his diving catch to end the third inning and was greeted by his happy teammates, it was clear the Mustangs were over their slow start. Third-seeded Mundelein won 13-10 at Lake Zurich on Wednesday in a game that featured 11 pitchers and lasted 2 hours and 45 minutes. Sam Osisek (3-for-5, 3 doubles, 6 RBI) and Luke Peterson (4-for-4, double, 4 runs scored, RBI) paced the Mustangs' 14-hit attack. Mundelein (26-8) will play the winner of today's game between No. 6 Lake Forest and No. 11 Lake Zurich in Saturday's Class 4A regional final at 11 a.m. Sophomore ace Brendan Murphy, who threw an inning against Grayslake North, is expected to start.
