District 9 Big Leaguers Move to 2-0

District 9 Big Leaguers are now 2-0 with an impressive win over the East representative New Jersey. Kyle Schepel (GR Christian) was the starting hurler for D-9. He threw six innings allowing one unearned run in the first inning. Schepel struck out twelve in the impressive outing. Alex Beelen(Holland Christian) got the save when D-9 doubled off a runner on first with a 6-4-3 double play. JD Corey (West Catholic) and Tommy Okke (Union and GRCC) both homered in the game. JD Corey now has eight RBI's in the two games. Mike Slagter also doubled to knock in a run and then went on to score. It was a cool 101 degrees at game time, however a cold front is coming through and it should be around 96 at game time today.
