LAWRENCEBURG – An inability to put opponents away in the late innings jumped up to bite Lawrenceburg softball again Tuesday night.

Now 5-7 overall, Lady Tigers fell to 1-4 in Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference play with a 7-5 loss to previously winless, injury-wracked Batesville.

Bulldogs broke a 2-2 tie in the top of the sixth inning, scoring three times off hard-luck losing pitcher Ashby Foster (seven innings, seven runs, five earned, eight hits, five strikeouts, three walks) to take a 5-2 lead.

Katie Thomas led off the Batesville sixth with a double to the gap in left-center field. Rebecca Roell and Meg Liter followed with singles, with Thomas scoring on Liter's hit just left of second base.

LAWRENCEBURG – Leading 4-3 with two outs in the top of the seventh inning against EIAC rival Franklin County last Monday, Lawrenceburg softball proved unable to close.

Now 5-6 overall, and 1-3 in Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference play, Lady Tigers gave up the two tying runs, then coughed up three more in the eighth to fall 7-5 in a particularly grating extra-inning loss.

“This is one we let slip away,” said LHS coach Mark McCool. “We get two outs in the seventh. We are up 4-3 and we didn't make the routine play. We did not hit the ball very well. To be in the position to win the game in the end, I felt we were very lucky.”

CINCINNATI – Lawrenceburg baseball swept two games Saturday at Cincinnati Western Hills to move its season mark to 5-3.

Nullifying the effects of back-to-back home Friday home losses to Jac-Cen-Del (8-2) and Switzerland County (9-5), coach Nick Tremain’s Tiger varsity retaliated the next day.

Playing a round-robin at Western Hills, coached by former LHS hurler Jimmy Holland, Lawrenceburg outslugged Hauser in a 12-10 barnburner, then nipped the host Mustangs 7-6, building early leads of 4-0 and 7-3 and hanging on in the seventh.

Saturday’s early contest with Hauser saw the two teams rap out a combined 22 hits, including five extra-base knocks.

LAWRENCEBURG – Lawrenceburg baseball, ignoring gusty winds that preceded the advance of Monday night's cold front, scored six times in the first three innings en route to an 11-1, five-inning victory over Milan.

Now 3-1 for the early spring, coach Nick Tremain's Tigers rode home runs from Noah Dunaway and Logan Scudder and a solid pitching effort by junior right-hander Sam Fette to the run-rule win.

Fette and reliever Adam Lang limited the Tribe to three hits, while LHS raked for 12 hits of its own at Pat O'Neill Field.

“Fette did a nice job tonight, challenging hitters and pitching to contact,” Tremain said. “He is going to continue to get better with every outing and really help give us pitching depth.”

LHS JUNIOR TURNER NO-HITS OLDENBURG FOR 1-0 WIN PDF Print E-mail

BATESVILLE – Lawrenceburg's Michael Turner made his first varsity baseball pitching decision a memorable one, no-hitting Oldenburg Academy to take a 1-0 mound duel Thursday night at Liberty Park.

Turner, a junior right-hander and the No. 2 starter in the LHS rotation, struck out two and walked none in retiring 21 consecutive Twisters batters.

Primarily a jayvee pitcher last spring, Turner threw 64 strikes of a total 104 pitches in his mound gem, dealing 13 first-pitch strikes. He charted 11 ground ball outs and six fly outs – including the game-ending pop out behind third base by losing hurler Josh Kinker (five innings, one unearned run, four strikeouts, two walks).

Tigers needed every pitch in Turner's no-no to eke out the one-run victory, behind held to just two hits of their own Thursday.

LAWRENCEBURG – Lawrenceburg softball opened its 2014 season in stupefying fashion in Saturday’s home conference doubleheader.

For starters, coach Mark McCool’s Lady Tigers finished game one in what they believed to be a 4-4 tie with the Lions, technically the home team in the first contest of the day.

Both coaching staffs, at least, believed the deadlocked existed after LHS was retired in the top of the seventh inning – only to be interrupted by Rushville's scorekeeper, who insisted the score was 5-4, Lions, and the game was over.

“It was interesting,” said McCool. “All of a sudden, their scorekeeper came down to inform us that the score actually was 5-4, because she had them scoring an extra run in the third inning.
