The Vandalia Gamecocks after their 20th straight victory.

The Vandalia Gamecocks players and coaches couldn’t help but get ahead of themselves this past week when they were just two games away from reaching a plateau of 20 straight victories.
The team responded by picking up two wins to push their winning streak to 20.
On June 13, the Gamecocks held off Eolia (McKinney) 11-8 in extra innings. Wyatt McDowell earned the victory while Lucas Robinson picked up the save.
Austin Brewster led the offense by going 2-for-3.
One June 18, the Gamecocks shut out Bowling Green (Kingsley) 8-0.
It was a close 1-0 game through two innings before the Gamecocks had a two run third inning and scored five runs in the fourth.
“We hit the ball in clutch situations; can’t ask for more than that,” said coach Nolan Gilley.
McDowell once again picked up a victory on the mound while Robinson earned the save.
Jake Stuart led the offense with a triple and two RBIs, both in the fourth inning. He also scored one run. Trey Hull went 3-for-3 with two runs scored.
