“The last couple of games we haven’t really been in stride a whole lot,” said Greenville coach, Adam Eberwein.  “We get runners on and we struggle to get them in. The nice thing to see today, we did finally put a ball in play with runners on.”

The teams played to a 0-0 score after one inning before the visitors broke the game open with six runs in the top of the second-inning and added two runs in the third to lead 8-0 with three innings in the book.

The Eagles plated four runs in the top of the fifth-inning with Greenville answering with two runs in the bottom of the inning giving Chaminade Julienne a 12-2 win.

“We’re slowly chunking away to get back into the baseball we were playing at the beginning of the season this year but sometimes you have that midseason slump where,” Eberwein noted. “Right now that’s where we’re at.”

Greenville opened the season with a 5-1 record before falling on hard times with a nine-game skid to stand at 5-10. The Wave still have a respectable 5-7 mark in MVL play.

“We’re getting into the weeks where we’re having five games a week,” Eberwein said. “Pitching gets to be a little sketchy when that starts to happen and right now that is kind of where we’re at.”

“We have to get ready for a tournament run,” Coach Eberwein added. “There is a chance we could see CJ again. CJ is a good ball club. They hit the ball well and they’re deep in their pitching, but we have to start playing our best baseball when it comes to tournament time. Hopefully we start doing that.”
