Rigney's pitching leads Pirates over Knights

Greensburg — The Greensburg varsity baseball team posted a team win Friday in a game against South Dearborn that was moved to Greensburg.

The Pirates improved to 16-4 with a 10-0 victory behind senior Collin Rigney’s one-hit shutout.

Greensburg bounced back from Thursday’s 12-5 loss to Shelbyville in a big way, hitting five extra-base hits and two that left the yard. Senior Andy Meadows hit two home runs and drove in four to add to his team-high 28 RBIs.. He also scored four times.

Senior Macy Holdsworth went 3-for-3 with a double and scored three times, while senior Tom Lawrence went 2-for-3 with two RBIs. Senior Bryce Bennett added a third-inning hit that drove in two runs.

“We hit it pretty well,” said Greensburg head coach Scott Holdsworth. “We didn’t execute as well as we would have liked in our bunting game, but we didn’t let that affect out hitting.”

Senior Collin Rigney, who hit 3-for-4 with two RBIs against Shelbyville, allowed just one hit in six innings. He struck out six batters and walked just two.

“Collin competed, pounding the zone with strikes, getting ahead in the count and pitching to contact,” said Scott Holdsworth. “We played very well defensively.”

Freshman infielder Chancy Holdsworth led Greensburg with seven assists on the day.

Greensburg next plays Saturday (today) at Jac-Cen-Del in a three-team event with Batesville. The Pirates will play Batesville at 11 a.m. in the first game, while Batesville and Jac-Cen-Del will play the second game. Greensburg will play Jac-Cen-Del at 3:30 p.m.
