REINBECK – The bottom of Gladbrook-Reinbeck's lineup stepped up on Thursday to help lift the Rebels to a 4-3 victory over Grundy Center.


G-R improved to 10-6 overall and 6-3 in the NICL West while Grundy Center fell to 8-9 overall and 5-5 in league play.


Rebel junior Tyler Tscherter got four free passes on Thursday as Grundy Center forced G-R to find other ways to score runs rather than Tscherter, one of the top hitters in the state with 10 home runs this season.


While Tscherter only accounted for one run scored in the third inning on a Jackson Kiburis sacrifice fly, the Rebels found other ways to score.


"We created three runs in that sixth inning leading off with our [No. 5] hitter," G-R head coach Scott Kiburis said. "The bottom of our lineup has been productive."
