Herald triumphs, ‘Dependent weeps

The Victors (Emily Gilbert / Herald)

The Herald reigns supreme once more.

On a cool and clear afternoon marking the 12th game in Herald-Indy history, the super squad of cub reporters, photographers and editors took down The Indy, 13-5, in a laugher. The all-time series now stands at 9-3 in favor of the good guys.

It took some time for the staff to warm up, but a five-run outburst in the bottom of the 4th inning erased The Indy’s puny one-run lead and gave The Herald a lead it would not relinquish.

Props to all who came for great play AND good sportsmanship (!) and particularly to the winners of the co-MVP award: Senior Staff Writers Mathias Heller and Margaret Nickens for coming up huge with timely hits in both five-run innings, and News Editor David Chung for hittin’ singles, roundin’ the bases and scorin’ runs suavely, in boat shoes.

A triumphant cheer (Emily Gilbert / Herald)
