A victory drops in for Vernon Hills

While high enough, Drew Winegardner's towering popup didn't draw rain. Rather, it sprinkled good fortune on him and his Vernon Hills baseball teammates. The sun shone on the Cougars and maybe in the eyes of Antioch's infielders, as the ball dropped untouched on the mound between two infielders with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, delivering the Cougars a walk-off win. "It thought it might have even hit the (pitching) rubber," Vernon Hills coach Jay Czarnecki said of Winegardner's popup. Matt Paszko raced home from second base, giving the Cougars a wild, 3-2 win in a North Suburban Prairie Division game Tuesday.
