Pirate JV softball splits two

The Greensburg junior varsity softball team split a pair of conference games in its most recent action, despite a cancellation against Franklin County.

The Lady Pirates beat Rushville 10-1 Monday in a rematch from a 23-11 victory two weeks ago, halting a five-game Lion win streak.

Greensburg (11-4) broke a scoreless tie in the second inning and added four more in the third. Rushville scored its lone run in the fifth, and Greensburg answered with five more in the final two innings.

Leading hitters: Renae Kramer 3-4, triple; Allie Geis, 2-4; McKayla McGuire triple; Shanda Workman, Kelsie Fischer, Emma Taylor, Paige Brogan and Maddy Schroeder one single apiece.

RBIs: Workman and Schroeder 2 RBI each; Paige Clemons, Geis, McGuire, Kramer, Alecia Whiton RBI each.

Sophomore Whitney Tallent (9-4) allowed just one run on four hits, walking three batters and striking out seven.

“Whitney Tallent had another good game and was backed up by some good defense,” said Wilhoit.

Greensburg benefitted from seven walks and two hit batters.

Pirates fall to Knights in extra innings

Greensburg had a chance Tuesday to beat archrival South Dearborn for the first time. In the rematch of the 3-2 loss, the Pirates fell to the Knights 14-11 in eight innings.

Greensburg jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning, and 5-2 after three. South Dearborn, though, scored five runs in the fourth and three in the fifth to go ahead 10-9. Trailing 11-9, Greensburg scored twice in the sixth to tie it. However, the Knights plated three runs in the eighth to take the win.

Bamberger hit a home run in the top of the eighth to seal the victory.

“But we never gave up and we went down kicking,” said Wilhoit, who added that four errors and eight runners stranded on base proved costly.

Wilhoit said Greensburg’s four errors proved to be costly.
