JV Baseball Loses to New Castle 9-4
April 30, 2008 - Knightstown’s junior varsity baseball team played well but fell to New Castle last Friday night, 9-4.
The Panthers rallied from a 6-2 deficit to pull to within two runs, but couldn’t muster enough offense to close the gap. Danny Ortman started on the mound for Knightstown, pitching 4 2/3 innings and giving up eight runs on four hits. He walked seven and struck out four.
Drew Martin went the last 1 1/3 innings, allowing one run on two hits.
Offensively, Knightstown collected eight hits in the contest, striking out just three times as a team. Kamron Beavers reached base three times and had a single. Zach Burchette had two hits, including one double, and Nolan Hall had two singles. Dustin Kwisz stroked a double.
“We hit the ball well tonight but we had several missed signals that cost us some runs and took us out of a couple of possible big innings,” coach Joe Patton said. “Danny (Ortman) pitched well but we had four errors, and we need to cut down on the number of walks. Five of their runs were scored by people that we had walked.”
The junior varsity boys host Frankton tonight (Wednesday) at 4:30, travel to Centerville Thursday, and return home on May 6 to play Rushville.
