Pirates win second in two nights

Greensburg — The Greensburg baseball team continued Friday where it left off in Thursday’s opener, defeating host South Ripley 14-2 in five innings.

The Pirates used a combination of pitching and hitting in both games, outscoring its first two opponents 37-2.

“It’s good to start with a couple wins,” said head coach Scott Holdsworth. “Our guys have really only been in baseball mode for a couple weeks. It’s very early yet. We had some good moments and we had some moments we’re going to work on improving, because it’s so early.”

Greensburg picked up a 23-0 win to open the season Thursday over visiting Milan.

Senior Luke Kane pitched a perfect game during a five-inning outing. Kane tallied nine strikeouts without allowing a base runner.

Senior Riley Billieu and junior Collin Rigney each recorded three hits and five runs batted in.

Highlighting a seven-run second inning were a run-scoring double by junior Macy Holdsworth and a two-run home run by Billieu. Rigney capped the scoring with a two-run single after three straight had reached on walks, plating junior Tom Lawrence and sophomore Josiah Buell.

Schultz and Meadows each recorded two hits, four runs and two stolen bases. Meadows drove in three runs.

Senior designated hitter Kyle Moeller also drove in a run, stole a base and scored twice.

Buell walked twice and scored twice.

Burcham, Greensburg’s leadoff hitter, scored three times and walked twice, adding a steal.

Doubles:  Burcham, Rigney 2, Holdsworth, Schultz.

Steals:  Burcham, Rigney, Schultz 2, Meadows 2, Moeller.

Coach Holdsworth said the hitters are getting more comfortable at the plate and being aggressive after a shortened practice schedule following the winter sports season.

“We’re working to just get into baseball mode, and get as many opportunities while we can,” he said. “Also, taking care of our pitching..,those things will come.”
