Knights hand Peru first loss

by Gary Andrews

The Southwood varsity baseball team hosted Peru in a double header Saturday, losing game one 5-4 before handing the Tigers their first loss of the season with a 9-8 victory in game two.

In game one, the first inning had plenty of action. In the top of the inning, Peru would strike first when Logan Brimbury hit a fly ball out to bring Cameron Beauchamp home. Richardson would then score on a Ray single for a 2-0 lead. The Southwood offense would waste no time answering the Peru opening. Jackson Blair led off the inning with a single and was followed by a Nathan Hollars single to put runners on first and second. Robbie Cole would then single and the Knights had the bases loaded with no outs. Brandin Frazier hit the fourth straight single, knocking in Blair and Hollars to tie the score at 2. On the next pitch Cole and Frazier pulled off a double steal with Jacob Lloyd making the Tigers pay with a 2 run single and the Knights led 4-2 after one.

Unfortunately for the Knights, the seeing eye hits they had in the first inning became a thing of the past the rest of the game as everything they hit went right at someone. The Tigers would chip away at the Knight lead, scoring 2 runs in the third to tie the game and scored 1 run in the 5th to take a 5-4 lead which held up for the game one win.
