Pirate JV softball concludes active week

The Greensburg junior varsity softball team went 2-2 the previous week.

“It was a good week for my young team,” said head coach Russell Wilhoit.

Greensburg fell to Jennings County last Thursday 7-4 in an error-laden outing.

Jennings County scored two runs in the second, third and fifth innings and added a run in the sixth.

Although Greensburg out-hit the Panthers 5-4, the Pirates committed five errors and the Panthers committed four.

“I felt real good that we out-hit them, but we made some silly errors that go with a young team,” said head coach Russell Wilhoit.

Sophomore Whitney Tallent suffered the loss.

Tallent led the Pirates with two singles. Adding a single each were Kelsie Fischer, Renae Kramer and Paige Brogan against a very good and fast pitcher, according to Wilhoit.

Fischer had 2 RBIs, while Shanda Workman and Emma Taylor each had one apiece.

Wilhoit said Tallent pitched a good game for Greensburg, allowed just three earned runs. Tallent struck out two and walked three with one stolen base.

On a nice night for softball, according to Wilhoit, Greensburg out-hit host Jac-Cen-Del 13-2 in a 15-2 Pirate win.

Greensburg jumped out to a 7-1 lead and never looked back, scoring in every subsequent frame. The Pirates wrapped the scoring with four more in the fifth inning.

Kelsie Fischer improved to 2-0, allowing just one earned run, two hits and five strikeouts.

“Kelsie Fischer, pitched a very good game in her second outing of the year,” said Wilhoit.

Greensburg swiped seven stolen bases.

Kasey Moeller led the run production with five RBIs. Fischer, Tallent and Taylor each drove in two, while Paige Brogan, Paige Clemons, and Renae Kramer each drove in one.

Fischer led her team with a 3-for-4 day, with two doubles and a triple. Whitney Tallent added two doubles, while Emma Taylor was 2-for-4 with a double. Hitting a single apiece were Kasey Moeller, Paige Brogan, Shanda Workman, McKayla McGuire, Maddy Schroeder and Krista Bauer.
