Pirate JV baseball now 6-4

The Greensburg Pirates junior varsity baseball team competed against the rival JV Batesville Bulldogs to a losing effort, by a score of 11-5, in the ninth game of the season. The Bulldogs took control from the third inning onward.

“We went through a great stretch early in the season, but now it seems like we have hit a bump in the road,” said Greensburg junior varsity coach Justin Tucker. “We will continue to work hard and improve, so we can get through this and be ready for our tournament at the end of the year.”

Offensively, the Pirates had seven hits on the day, while taking seven walks. Devon Workman and Brandt Ricketts led the team with two hits each, while Bryce Logsdon, Andrew Douglas, and Evan Bailey added one apiece.

“I know this is just a bump in the road, and we will continue to work hard and develop into a better baseball team,” Coach Tucker added.

With the conference loss, the JV Pirates drop to 6-3 on the season, with an EIAC conference record of 3-1.

Greensburg traveled to Columbus East to compete against the JV Olympians, but lost 9-6 in a game that came down to the final swing. After losing a once 6-2 lead in the game, the Pirates found themselves tied 6-6 against the JV Olympians who were hitting in the bottom of the seventh. With two runners on and no outs, Columbus East smashed a three-run walk-off home run to win the game 9-6.

“Baseball is a great game- sometimes everything is going right, and sometimes nothing is going right. Right now is one of those times that nothing is going right,” Head Coach Justin Tucker stated.

Offensively, the Pirates had eight hits on the day, while taking six walks. Austin Kane and Brandt Ricketts led the team with two hits a piece, while Bryce Logsdon, Andrew Douglas, Kyle Howard, and Devon Workman added one each. Juniors Logsdon and Douglas pitched a great game, Coach Tucker added.

“We just have to keep our heads up and keep battling, and things will turn around. I have no doubt that we will be playing our best baseball when the EIAC tournament comes in two weeks.” Coach Tucker said.

With the fourth consecutive loss, the JV Pirates drop to 6-4 on the season, with an EIAC conference record of 3-1.
