Nappanee–It was a historic night for the Elkhart County Miracle on Wednesday! They won their first game in franchise history defeating the reigning league champions and previously undefeated Lake County Corn Dogs, by a score of 6-3.
Javier Guevara got things started for the Miracle, sending a 3-run blast over the left field fence to give the boys from Elkhart a 3 run lead.
Connor Gausslin was strong on the mound early on striking out 3 in the first 2 innings, and holding the Corn Dogs scoreless through 5.
Lake County finally got on the board in the 6th, using a pair of triples, but the Miracle struck back with 2 of their own in their half of the inning; holding a 5-3 lead heading to the 7th.
From then on it was the Miracle bullpen that stole the show. Ethan Lengfelder and Robin Vazquez-Vallejo combined for three scoreless innings. Vazquez-Vallejo was credited with the save.
“Well now we know what we’re capable of,” Wilson Valera, head coach of the Miracle said. “We’ve got to do it every day.”
