Eleven was heaven for the McPherson U-12 Lady Express on Tuesday.

That was the number of runs the Express achieved in sweeping the Beloit Blaze.

Back-to-back five-run innings keyed an 11-8 first-game victory. McPherson spotted Beloit a 5-0 lead before coming back strong.

Cameron Pelzel drove in three runs to spark the offense. Olivia Morgan added two RBIs, while Brett Doile scored three runs. Abby Hipp, Sheridan Bliss and Jaycee Rausch scored two each.

Doile settled down after the first inning to earn the victory.

It took another comeback to win Game 2 as Beloit led 6-2 after an inning of play before McPherson charged back for an 11-9 success.

Madi Tolle and Maliya Paine had two hits apiece. Pelzel drove in two and scored three. Morgan and Paine both scored two. Doile came on in relief for the victory.

McPherson is now 26-8 on the season.
