Pirates win first two on diamond

Greensburg — The Greensburg varsity baseball team tallied a pair of 10-run-rule victories the past two nights to start the season at 2-0.

The Pirates shut out visiting South Ripley in Greensburg’s home opener Friday, 12-0, after topping host Milan 17-1 in Thursday’s season opener.

Greensburg batted around twice against Milan Thursday night. The Pirates wasted no time getting on the board as senior Macy Holdsworth walked and stole second base in the first inning. Senior Andy Meadows singled in Holdsworth, and senior Jacob Kelso hit an RBI double to plate Meadows.

Senior Collin Rigney ended the day hitting 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI and three runs. Leading the team in run production was Austin Kane, hitting 3-for-3 with five RBI and a double. Meadows hit 3-for-4 with four RBI and three runs, and Holdsworth hit 2-for-3 with an RBI and five runs.

Senior Tom Lawrence added an RBI.

Greensburg recorded five stolen bases on the night.

Freshman Trevor Reynolds made his first career varsity start, pitching five innings of four-hit, one-run ball. Reynolds struck out four batters and did not walk any.

In Friday’s win over South Ripley, Macy Holdsworth highlighted a six-run first inning with a two-run home run that also plated Collin Rigney.

Kane hit a triple that scored Meadows and Kelso, and senior Devon Workman added a single that scored Kane.

After Greensburg scored four times in the second inning to make it 10-0, Lawrence highlighted the third inning with a two run single that scored Holdsworth and Meadows.

According to head coach Scott Holdsworth, Greensburg hit seven well-hit balls to the middle-to-right side of the infield. He said he is pleased with the production of the lineup after just two games.

“Our approach offensively has been really good this early in the season,” he said. “We settled in really nicely.
