High School Roundup: Lansing baseball team wins 32nd straight game



Sam Currie tossed a three-hitter with 14 strikeouts and overcame shaky fielding behind him as the Lansing baseball team stretched its two-year win streak to 32 games with a 4-3 defeat of Moravia Wednesday in Interscholastic Athletic Conference Large North action.

Senior first baseman Troy Osterman was moved into the clean-up spot in the batting order and responded by going 3-for-3 with a double and three RBIs for the Bobcats (6-0), the defending state Class C champions.
