CALEDONIA, Mich — Tyler Sigler was 3-3, John VanVliet drove in 2 runs and Austin Batka pitched a complete game as Grand Rapids Christian beat Haslett 7-1 Tuesday in a division 2 quarterfinal at Davenport University.

Haslett scored a run in the top of the 1st inning without the benefit of hit.  Batka, the Eagles starting pitcher, allowed just 2 hits pitching a complete game to get the win.

VanVliet drove in the Chrsitian’s 1st run in the bottom of the 2nd and added another in the bottom of the 6th.  Sigler singled, doubled and tripled in that order and scored 2 runs.

Grand Rapids Christian advances to the division 2 state semifinals Friday in Battle Creek where they will face Remus Chippewa Hills at 1 P.M..
