According to Wilhoit, Tallent was called up to varsity just before the game to pitch in relief.
“But I thought we played a good game mentally,” he said.
The highlight of the game for Greensburg was Emma Taylor’s home run, the Pirates’ first of the season.
Hitting: Allie Geis 5-5, double; Emma Taylor 4-5 Alecia Whiton, 2-4, double; Kelsie Fischer and Kasey Moeller each 2-5 with a double, Renae Kramer and Maddy Schroeder one single apiece.
Taylor and Kramer each drove in three runs. Geis had 2 RBIs. Moeller, Workman and Fischer drove in a run apiece.
Pitching for just the third time this season, and the first time in more than three weeks, Fischer (2-1) pitched a nice game for finding out only an hour before game time that she was pitching, according to coach Wilhoit. Fischer allowed just 10 hits, while four runs were unearned. She struck out nine batters and walked just five.
Meyer gave up 11 runs, all earned on 17 hits, she did not walk a batter and struck out 4 to earn the victory.
Greensburg hosts Shelbyville tonight at 7 p.m. after the varsity game, in a rescheduled contest rained out two weeks ago. The Pirates play in the Shelbyville Invitational tomorrow, playing Batesville a third time at 11 a.m. Shelbyville and Milan play at 9 a.m. The consolation game and championship games will follow.
