The Wabash baseball team picked up two wins over Blackford Saturday, winning game one 5-4 and game two 10-3. The game one win was the first for head coach Jack Holley in his debut as the Apache coach.

Things didn’t look good for the Apaches starting game one as Blackford plated two runs in the top of the first, but Wabash would answer in the bottom. Kyle Kelsheimer led off with a walk but was caught in a rundown right before a Jordan Holley single. Treavor Floor would then double home Holley to make it 2-1. The Apaches would manufacture one more run with a walk, hit batter and a bunt to make it 2-2.
