The Southwood varsity baseball team topped Eastern, 15 – 14 in 8 innings Thursday. Jake Lloyd paced the 9 and 9 Knight niners with three hits; Jackson Blair, Kyle Weaver, Dustin Curless and Robbie Cole had two hits apiece; Nathan Hollars, Christian Deeter and Luke Elliott each added a hit.
This was a great extra innings game featuring lots of runs, Nathan Hollars scored the winning run in the 8th reaching on a walk moving to second on a Blair walk. With 2 outs Nathan stole 3rd and the throw went into left field scoring another run.
We really swung the bats well, everyone in the line-up contributed. B Kelly threw the ball well and was hurt by some defensive mistakes. We have found a way to win a lot of close games lately, and it is great to get to .500. We are now 9 and 9 after starting 3-8, our team has been on a nice run lately. We have not played pretty baseball, but our team now expects to find a way to win.
