Multiple Teams · Baseball wins 5th straight

The fourth-ranked Dragon baseball team won its fifth straight game to start the season, beating Perry Meridian 6-3 Monday at Holder Field.

A game that saw an hour-long rain delay saw the Dragons break a three-all tie with a two-run third inning. The Dragons added another insurance run in the seventh.

Cameron Pitzer came on in relief after the delay and pitched four shutout innings, allowing one hit and striking out eight to earn his first varsity win. Jacob Garrison struck out the side in a perfect seventh to earn the save.

The Dragons had 10 hits, led by Jacob Smith, who double d twice, scored twice and drove in two. Keegan Watson also doubled twice, scored three runs and had an RBI on a 2-for-3 day. Jack Walker was 2-for-2 with an RBI. Nick Rusche was 2-for-4 with a run. Jacob Hickman had an RBI double and Colby Jenkins had a hit.

The Dragons are now 5-0. They next play Thursday at home against Knightstown.

The JV game was canceled due to rain.
