The Chesterton baseball team saw its 14-game winning streak snapped, but improved to 20-5 overall by winning 2-of-3 games at the Greyhound Invitational in Carmel.

The Trojans dropped a 3-2 decision to South Dearborn in the opener on Friday, but rebounded with a 9-2 victory over University and a 3-2 9-inning win over Park Tudor on Saturday.

Pratt struck out four and allowed five hits in going the distance on the mound.

Against University, the Trojans broke open a 3-1 game with a six-run fourth innings that sealed the deal.

Offensively, Ralph led the way with two hits, while Michael Griffin, Matt Kubacki, Chance Lawson, Tyler Quillin, Jeremy Jaeger and Colin McEuen all had a hit.

Quillin got the victory on the mound with six innings of work, striking out four and allowing just three hits. Dallas Milligan struck out two in working the final inning.

Against Park Tudor, Corey Rusboldt’s walk-off RBI single plated VanderZanden in the bottom of the ninth for the victory. Pratt homered to lead off the inning to set up Rusboldt’s game-winner.

Pratt, Tyler Sufana and Rusboldt all had two hits in the victory, while VanderZanden also added a single.
