Greensburg — The Greensburg varsity baseball team suffered a conference loss to East Central Monday on Senior Night, falling 7-2 at home.
Before the game, the Pirates honored the careers of seniors Cameron Maschino, Dylan Meyer and Joe Vanderbur.
"Our effort and want-to was good, but we just didn't execute," said Greensburg head coach Scott Holdsworth. "We didn't put the ball in play. Our approach at the plate was a little off from what it had been."
Dylan Meyer gave up just one earned run in six-plus innings on seven hits. Sophomore Luke Kane pitched the remainder of the game.
"Defensively, we did not play well behind Dylan," said Holdsworth. "We gave up too many opportunities for EC, and they took advantage."
Greensburg (19-2 overall) scored in the first inning after the Trojans were retired in order.
Junior Ethan Bailey led off with a single, then stole second base. Sophomore Austin Schultz hit a sacrifice fly that scored Bailey.
In the fifth, freshman Collin Rigney singled. Maschino drove in Rigney for the Pirates' final run of the game.
"Give East Central credit," said Holdsworth. "They attacked us in the zone. We didn't adjust."
Greensburg continues a busy week with a game Thursday at South Dearborn, a home game against Batesville Friday, then Saturday's Roncalli Invitational.
"We have to learn from tonight," said Holdsworth, "and put it in the rear view mirror. Turn the page, go on and get better for the upcoming games."
