COLUMBIA CITY — Ryan Kerschner hit a grand slam, but it still took extra innings for Columbia City to beat Churubusco Monday.

Columbia City defeated ‘Busco by a final of 6-5 in eight innings.

Kerschner may have had the big blast, but it was Jordan Bickle who had the winning one, doubling in the bottom of the eighth to bring home Travis Herbst and end the game.

The grand slam came in the bottom of the first inning and gave Columbia City a 4-1 lead. Churubusco had scored in the top of the first off of a sacrifice hit by Brent Simmons, which scored Logan Harris.

Columbia City made it 5-1 in the bottom of the second when Landon Rehrer scored on an RBI-double from Bickle.
