Baseball justice was meted out in unusual fashion Tuesday evening at Northview, where visiting West Vigo won 6-4 in Western Indiana Conference high school play by not hitting the ball very hard in its crucial inning — just after the host Knights failed to score by hitting the ball too hard.
In a tense game in which every little play had meaning, the Knights looked ready to break a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the sixth after a leadoff walk, a bunt single and a sacrifice put runners at second and third with one out and the meat of the Northview batting order coming up.
