Pirates knocking on EIAC door

Greensburg — The Greensburg varsity baseball team has won its last two conference games to solidify its bid to grab a share of the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference championship.

The Pirates, now 13-4, beat visiting Batesville 8-5 Saturday and East Central 13-12 Monday at home. All tied with two EIAC losses apiece are Greensburg, East Central and Franklin County, which visits Greensburg Tuesday (tonight) for a makeup game at 5 p.m.

Senior Kyle Moeller scored senior Tyler Burcham on a single to start Saturday’s scoring. Greensburg jumped on Batesville 4-1 on the strength of junior Collin Rigney’s 3-run home run, scoring senior Jack Eberhardt and sophomore Josiah Buell.

The Pirates made it 6-2 in the fourth, then 7-2 in the fifth, before Batesville pulled to within two at 7-5.

Senior Luke Kane drove in the final run with a single to score senior Austin Schultz.

Kane recorded the win on the mound, giving up just two earned runs, and junior Tom Lawrence pitched a scoreless inning in relief. Kane recorded four strikeouts on the night.

Burcham, Kane and Buell each went 2-for-4.

In Monday’s win over East Central, the Trojans enjoyed a 4-0 lead before the Pirates scored five times in the bottom of the first. Macy Holdsworth, Austin Schultz and Jack Eberhardt came up with the big hits.

Greensburg went ahead for good, 9-8, on Rigney’s double that scored Burcham. Schultz later drove in Rigney to make it 10-8.

Greensburg’s top three hitters in the lineup scored 10 of the 13 runs. Burcham and Holdsworth each scored three, while Rigney scored a team-high four. Schultz drove in a team-high three runs. Rigney, Holdsworth, Billieu and Kane each added two.

“We executed in the box tonight and were very productive,” said Greensburg head coach Scott Holdsworth. “We had some tough outs out there. One of the things we take away from tonight is coming back after inning on, putting five back up - really just having a poised approach. We came out and put some quality at-bats together (65 percent - the team’s target each game). I’m real pleased with the victory.”

Coach Holdsworth realizes what is at stake - a conference title.

“We have to win out to win conference,” he said. “Tonight is just one step in the process. It just puts a little bit of extra importance on every detail in the games.”
