Pirates bury visiting Tigers 15-5

Greensburg — The Greensburg varsity baseball team rebounded from two earlier losses this week with a 15-5 run-rule win over visiting Lawrenceburg Thursday.

The Pirates scored 11 runs in the second inning to break the game open and improve to 10-4 on the season.

Senior Jack Eberhardt led Greensburg at the plate with three runs batted in. Junior Macy Holdsworth went 2-for-4 with two RBI’s including a solo home run to center field leading off the fifth inning to enact the run rule. Holdsworth scored a game-high three runs.

Tyler Burcham, Collin Rigney, Austin Schultz, Kyle Moeller and Riley Billieu each drove in a run.

Senior Luke Kane struck out six batters in his four and one-third innings, and senior Riley Billieu pitched a perfect two-thirds of an inning in relief.

Greensburg next week plays Franklin County, Shelbyville, North Decatur and a double-header against Jac-Cen-Del and Batesville Saturday.

“We’re excited about the game,” said head coach Scott Holdsworth of Thursday’s win, “but we’re excited about the big week we’re going to have.”

Greensburg fell to visiting Columbus East Monday and conference rival Franklin County Tuesday night, marking a rare two-game losing streak for the Pirates.

Columbus East beat the Pirates 16-0 to start the week. The visiting Olympians did most of their damage Monday in the later innings. Senior Austin Schultz led Greensburg with two hits.

A grand slam forced the Pirates out of a shot at rallying back.

Greensburg fell to Franklin County 5-0 Tuesday on the road. The Wildcats scored six runs in the fifth inning and held Greensburg to three hits, including junior Macy Holdsworth’s double.

Junior Collin Rigney hit two fielders’ choice grounders, while sophomore Josiah Buell added one.

Sophomore Jacob Kelso struck out three batters in four and two-thirds innings, and senior Jack Eberhardt was the victim of nine unearned runs in

two and one-third innings of relief.

“They competed and they battled for us,” said Coach Holdsworth of the pitchers’ efforts.
