 JV Baseball Team Beats Lincoln 25-20

April 23, 2008 - With a final score that more resembled a football game than a baseball slugfest, Knightstown’s junior varsity baseball team defeated Cambridge City Lincoln last Friday 25-20.

Coach Joe Patton’s team pounded out 20 hits on its way to the win. Knightstown scored six runs in the first inning and added four more in the second to build an early 10-2 lead. Lincoln battled back with a six-run second inning and cut the Panther lead to 11-10 after three innings.

But a seven-run fourth frame by the Panthers blew the game open, and Knightstown eventually built a 25-16 lead. Lincoln rallied for four more runs in the bottom of the seventh before the Panthers held on for the win.

Travis Titus got the win on the mound in relief of Nolan Hall. Mike Hurst and Danny Ortman also pitched.

Knightstown pounded Lincoln pitching for 20 hits, including four by Ortman, who slapped two doubles. Mike Hurst also had four hits and plated five runs. Dustin Kwisz had three hits, including one double, and Titus had two hits with a double. Zach Sanders tripled, singled and scored four times.

Last Tuesday the Panthers lost to Yorktown 12-10. The Panthers led 8-5 after getting six runs in the top of the fourth inning. Yorktown rallied with four runs in the fourth and three more in the fifth inning to get the win.

Ortman started on the mound for Knightstown, and Isaac Imel and Mike Hurst both shared relief pitching duties.

That trio struggled on the mound, surrendering 14 hits and yielding eight walks to the Tigers.

Imel had one hit and scored three runs, while Nolan Hall had a pair of hits in the game. Brandon Carrender hit safely twice and scored two runs, while Hurst also had a hit.

The junior varsity traveled to Eastern Hancock Tuesday and visits New Castle Friday. The next home game will be Monday against Shenandoah.
