WEST CARROLLTON – The Greenville varsity baseball team defeated the West Carrollton Pirates 6-5 on the Pirates home field in Monday night MVL action.

“It was a great day for baseball and another Wave win,” said Greenville coach Adam Eberwein. “A win is a win when you look at the records.”

The teams played scoreless ball after two innings of action before the Green Wave dented the third inning plate with a Quenton Garner lead-off walk, Adam Edwards getting hit by a pitch, and a two-out Braeden Wills two-run double for a 2-0 lead after three.

Greenville plated 3 runs in the top of the fifth to lead 5-0 getting an Isaac Kerg walk, a Wills single and Bryce Blumenstock legging out a knock back to the mound played for an unearned run. Layne Hocker followed with a single, C Jasenski got a 2-out walk and Quinton Garner drilled a 2-run single to left.

“We had some good timely hits with runners in scoring position,” Coach Eberwein stated.

The Pirates took advantage of a Greenville error and answered with 3 runs in the bottom of the inning to make it a 5-3 and tacked on a run in the bottom of the sixth to pull within 1 run at 5-4.

Greenville quickly got the run back in the top of the seventh with an Owen Mcgreevey lead-off double to left and came around to score on a Garner RBI single to left giving the Wave a lead 6-4 win the home team coming to bat in the bottom of the inning.

The Pirates scored a seventh-inning unearned run before a popup to Wills on the mound closed out play with Greenville taking home a conference win.

“Tonight’s game was not a clean game, but our guys battled through some mistakes and some difficult situations,” Eberwein noted. “We need to get back on track of playing more efficient and complimentary baseball.”

Cole Oswalt pitched 5.1 innings allowing 1 earned run on 5 hits, 2 walks while striking out 8 batters. Wills closed out the game tossing 1.2 innings giving up 1 earned run on 2 hits, 4 walks, and 2 strikeouts.

Garner went 2-3 with a walk, 3 RBIs, and a run scored; Wills was 2-3 including a double with a walk and 2 RBIs. Titus Eberwein 1-5 with a double; Hocker 1-5 with a run scored; Mcgreevey 1-2 with a run; Edwards and Kerg a walk and a run; Blumenstock a run scored.
