Responding to adversity is becoming an early-season trademark for Sandburg’s baseball team.

Senior pitcher Eric Nelson provided the latest example Thursday, April 2, in a 6-5 win over visiting Andrew (3-3).

After the first five Thunderbolts reached base in the first inning (including a three-run home run by Tom Bushnell), Nelson responded by retiring the next 12 hitters in a row, and the Eagles (4-1) rallied to a 6-5 win.
