The Indians got back in the win column as they defeated Searles late Monday night, July 2, and ended their seven-game dry spell.
Indians 7
Grizzlies 3
After a quiet first inning, the Indians captured an elusive rhythm that allowed consecutive runs to be scored in the second inning. To start things off, Matt Mielke slapped a double to deep center field. After that, the Grizzlies found out their shoelaces were tied together and made a handful of mistakes, allowing Mielke, Sean Salfer, and Alex Woitas to score.
Alan Woitas added a run in the third, after he was reeled in by Mielke who got the RBI. The Grizzlies added a run of their own off a couple errors during the bottom of the third, and two more during the fourth.  
Joey Walter and Alex Sellner scored during the top of the fifth, and were brought home by Mielke and Salfer. With the lead in hand, Sellner ponied up on the mound and suffocated the Grizzlies. The Indians horse only allowed seven hits, while striking out seven and walking four.
Matt Berkner scored the final run for the Indians during the ninth on a sacrifice fly from Salfer.
John Mangen Day
Indians 4
Longhorns 3
The Indians played the  Stark Longhorns July 8, John Mangen Day at the Ballpark. Tension, temperature, and tempers were high, as the Indians and the Longhorns clashed, notching another good game in the belt of the old school rivalry that goes back a long way.
Each team felt the other out in the first two innings, that they were rather uneventful. The Longhorns scored a run in the third, thanks to Jake Mangen.
The Indians added two of their own in the fourth.  Matt Berkner was brought in by a Sean Salfer single. The Indians then got creative and pressured the Longhorns through an unorthodox base-stealing method, which helped get Joey Walter home. The first base runner would go out to where the outfield began and stand there, baiting the throw to first, which would surely allow the runner on third to score. The fact that the second baseman bobbled a catch only helped Walter score and Derek Nachreiner to reach second.
The Indians went on to add another run in the third, thanks to an Alan Woitas double that brought home Andrew Woitas.
The Longhorns added a run in the sixth, but the Indians would up them in the seventh, as Alex Sellner doubled and scored off an Andrew Woitas single to seal the win.
Andrew Woitas controlled the game completely from the mound, utilizing all of his sweet spots as he pitched all nine innings, allowing only three runs off nine hits, and striking out one.
Matt Berkner went 4 for 4, Alan Woitas went 4 for 4 with an RBI and Andrew Woitas went 2 for 4 with an RBI.
Next up for the Indians was make-up game against the Springfield Tigers on Monday, July 9.
Tigers 5
Indians 0
The Tigers are quietly making a case for being the best team in the Tomahawk East conference, and they showed it Monday night.
Alex Sellner held the Tigers at bay from the mound the first three innings, but they fought back in the fourth and fifth, scoring four runs and then adding one more in the eighth.
The Indians couldn’t find their rhythm in the Monday night heat and never got a runner past second.
Sellner pitched for five innings, struck out two, and gave up six hits. Austin Fischer took over in the sixth and pitched for three innings. He allowed a run, but struck out two, and only gave up two hits.   
Alan Woitas went 3 for 4, Matt Mielke went 1 for 4, Alex Woitas and Jared Beltz each went 1 for 3.
The Indians play again Sunday, July 15, at 2 p.m. in Lamberton.
