The Southwood JV Baseball team closed out their season hosting Pioneer for a DH.
In game 1, Southwood jumped out to a 2 – 0 lead after the first inning. Then the bats went really quiet for the rest of the game. Southwood was only able to score 1 more run throughout the rest of the game. Southwood on defense committed 6 errors. Of the Pioneer 9 runs, only 1 of them was earned.
In game 2, both teams were out of pitchers to use, so it was a lot of walks. Combined for both teams there were double digit pitchers used. Twice Pioneer had the Knights ten runned, but Southwood was able to get enough runs to force another inning. The total game lasted nearly four hours. Southwood continued to battle all game long at the plate, but couldn’t score enough to over come the pitching issues.
