Pirate JV softball falls in doubleheader

Despite playing on one of the nicer days this spring, the Greensburg junior varsity softball team lost both ends of a double header Saturday to Columbus East.

“Both games were fairly well played,” said JV head coach Russell Wilhoit, “but the Columbus East team, being an older team, held on to the victories.”

Greensburg scored two in the fourth, one in the sixth and one in the seventh. Columbus East scored five in the third and four in the fifth.

Wilhoit said three base running errors hurt the team.

“These three really made the difference in winning or losing the game, but you expect that in very young teams,” he said. “They fought hard and never gave up, which is a very good sign in building a new young team.”

Greensburg committed just one error in the game.

Whitney Tallent (1-2) pitched a complete game, allowing eight hits, nine runs (7 earned), eight strikeouts and five walks.

Hitting for Greensburg, who only had four hits, had a lot of right em hits, was Shanda Workman with a team-high two hits. Whitney Tallent and Allie Geis each chipped in a single.

Kramer pitches first high school game

Game two, which Columbus East won 12-9, consisted of more offense. Columbus East scored five runs in bottom of the sixth to hold off the Lady Pirates.

Renea Kramer, a freshman in her first high school game as a pitcher, did a very good job, this was her first game pitching in over two years  as she had hurt her shoulder and did not play at all last year.

Greensburg scored one in the first inning, three in the fifth and sixth, and two more in the seventh. Columbus East led 5-1 going into the fifth inning.

Kramer only allowed three hits, struck out eight batters, walked six, and hit three batters. She allowed 12 runs (9 earned) in five and one-third innings and Tallent relieved her in bottom of the sixth to get the final two outs. Kramer, according to Wilhoit, had run out of gas after walking three straight batters, but he was pleased with her first game on the mound.

“I was really pleased with her showing in her first outing, and will go a long way in helping us later in the season,” he said. “It’s always good to have two good young pitchers like Whitney and Renea.”

In pounding out 10 hits, the Lady Pirates were led by Katie Bennett and Kelsie Fischer with three singles apiece. Kramer and Tallent, Paige Clemons and Katie Koors each chipped in with a single,

Greensburg (1-3) will host Jac-Cen-Del Tuesday at 5 p.m., and Jennings County Thursday at 5 p.m. come on out and watch the lady pirates play, they will appreciate it.

The Lady Pirates are coached by Russell Wilhoit, JV Head coach and Freshman coach Brian Dodson.
