The varsity baseball team fought hard but lost to Park Hill 15-12 on Saturday, April 28. The Indians started out on top with Senior Zane Barr hitting a home run in the top of the first inning and Senior Nick Dye scoring in the top of the 2nd. Park hill made one score in the short-lived bottom of the 3rd, ending the 3rd inning 2-1.

“When you out on the field you have to be ready to think on your feet and know what to do,” Senior Bryce Dye said

Park hill came back in the bottom 4th inning where they made four runs ending the 4th inning leading 5-2. The Indians changed pitchers from starter sophomore Sam Carlson to junior Jared Larson. Things looked up in the top of the 5th when Barr scored and Nick Dye hit the 2nd Home Run for the Indians allowing both him and Bryce Dye to score ending the top of the 5th in a tie 5-5.

“I was just trying to hit the fence, to get something off the bat” Nick Dye said.

After the bottom of the 5th where Park Hill made 2 more runs, the pitcher once again changed from Larson to Junior Steven Orwick. Entering the bottom of the 6th inning the Indians were in the lead having scored 3 times in the top of the 6th, Park Hill retaliated, however, scoring a total of 8 runs ending the 6th inning with a score of 15-8.

The Indians also lost the second game of the double header 17-7 to move their record to 10-12 on the season.
