Double play lifts Lady Pirates over Shelbyville

Greensburg — The Greensburg varsity softball team took an early three-run lead and held off a late rally in a 7-6 victory over Shelbyville Friday.

The Lady Pirates executed a crucial double play to finish off the Class 4A visitors with the bases loaded.

Greensburg, which improves to 17-4 on the season, led 6-3 after three innings. The big hit was a 3-run home run by sophomore Keauna Schultz, her team-leading fourth of the season.

Freshman Haylee Owens out-pitched her freshman counterpart for the win.

“Great game between two freshman pitchers,” said Greensburg head coach Jake Shook.

Schultz drove in four runs on the day, the only RBIs Greensburg recorded. Sophomore Britney Biltz hit 2-for-2 with two runs scored, and freshman Gabby Burton went 2-for-3 with a run.

Biltz and Owens each scored twice, while Owens went a team-best 3-for-3. Owens also stole three bases.

“We hit the ball really well tonight,” said Shook.

Shelbyville loaded the bases in the top of the seventh, trailing 7-4. The Golden Bears pulled to within one run with just one out. The leadoff hitter hit into a fielder’s choice with the tying run on third, and junior Chelsea Hersley fielded it cleanly. Hersley threw the lead runner out at the plate to record the second out. Schultz delivered an alert play for her team, throwing out the girl trying to advance to third, to complete the double play. Third baseman Megan Schmidt controlled the ball and applied the tag to end the game.

Owens gave up just four earned runs and walked just two batters in seven innings for a complete game.

Greensburg tallied 10 hits on the night.
