The Tigers went to 23-9 on the season overall and finished their SWC schedule at 9-5, while the Panthers fell to 27-3-1 on the year, 12-1 in the league with only one SWC game against Collinsville left.

The Tigers scored twice in the fourth and one more time in the sixth for the win; Cole Hampton was 1-for-3 with a double and two RBIs; Dalton Wallace was 1-for-2 for EHS, with Josh Ohl 1-for-3 with an RBI and Aaron Young had the other run scored for the Tigers.

Reid Hendrickson and Chase Gockel combined for the two-hitter, only conceding hits to Matthew Albritton and Hayden Juenger; Hendrickson dismissed six by strikeout in six innings of work in getting the win while Gockel fanned two in his only inning on the mound.

Edwardsville visits Triad at 4:15 p.m. Friday and hosts Springfield at 11 a.m. Saturday in a single game; they are scheduled to close the regular season at 6 p.m. Monday against Waterloo at GCS Ballpark in Sauget.
