The Pepsi Showdown isn't just a prestigious soccer tournament where numerous high school teams pick up a few wins or suffer a few losses. It's a place where coaches can gauge their team's play and tweak things as the final stretch of the regular season approaches.
Getting to play a string of games hasn't been easy for the OPRF baseball team. Last week, the uncooperative weather allowed for just one game in five days for the Huskies, who earned a 13-9 win over West Suburban (Silver) rival Hinsdale Central.
After falling to Downers Grove South earlier in the week, the OPRF baseball team took all its frustration out on another West Suburban Conference foe by serving up 23 runs in two games. The victim was Leyden, who the Huskies pummeled 14-1 and 9-0 in doubleheader action on Saturday.
