HINTON — Eighth-grader, Jaydn Case, delivered a two-out, bases-loaded single up the middle in the bottom of the seventh inning to score Madi Kovarna with the winning run and Hinton edged Gehlen Catholic 3-2 Wednesday night in non-conference softball action at the Held Sports Complex in Hinton.  It was Case’s first career hit and RBI.  Kovarna drove in the first Blackhawk run with a single in the third and the Blackhawks made it 2-0 on an error an inning later.  Gehlen drew to within 2-1 on Anna Britt’s RBI single in the fifth and a sacrifice fly by Kennedy Heying in the sixth tied the game.  El’lee Kroll picked up the win with a complete game, six-hitter for Hinton.  Brooke Woerdehoff took the loss for Gehlen.  Hinton’s winning rally started with a two-out, hit-batter.  Three consecutive singles after that brought in the winner.  Hinton improves to 1-and-1 while Gehlen falls to 0-and-2.

SHELDON — The Sheldon Orabs erased a 4-2 deficit with a five-run sixth inning Wednesday night and then held off a counter-rally by Le Mars in the seventh to top the Lady Bulldogs 7-6 in a non-conference softball match-up in Sheldon.  The Orabs sent eight batters to the plate in the sixth with a two-run double by Mikayla Simonsen being the key hit.  Le Mars scored twice in the top of the seventh to draw to within one run, thanks to a pair of errors but left the potential tying run stranded on third.  Jenn Schneider had two hits and a RBI on her first home run of the season to lead the Le Mars offense.  The loss drops the Lady Bulldogs to 1-and-2.

INDIANAPOLIS — Will Power has furnished Team Penske with its 17th Indianapolis 500 victory.  The 37-year-old Australian took the lead when Oriol Servia and Jack Harvey had to put for fuel with four laps to go. Power then held off pole winner Ed Carpenter to wrap up the win.  It was Power’s second straight victory and comes on the heels of his road-course win at Indy earlier this month.  With hot weather creating a slick, 2 ½-mile oval, new cars with less downforce proved to be a handful. And it cost a number of big-name drivers a shot at IndyCar’s most prestigious event. Last year’s winner Takuma Sato lost control and wrecked, as did Danica Patrick, Sebastien Bourdais, three-time winner Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan.
