The Hillsboro Indians baseball team has had a solid week this week and capped that off on Thursday with a 9-2 victory over South Central Ohio League opponent Miami Trace.
Earlier this week, the Indians knocked off a very good Adena team in a 6-5 win and then on Wednesday night, gave Clinton-Massie its first league loss by defeating them 6-4.
It was all Indians the whole game as every player except one was able to find their way across home plate at least once.
Sophomore pitcher Colin Bullock pitched a gem for the Hillsboro team, only getting into a little trouble in the final inning where the Panthers were able to scratch two runs in their scoring column. Bullock picked up the win in the game going all seven, giving up just five hits and two runs, while striking out seven Panthers and walking just one.
Leading the Indians at the plate was Mason Stanley who was 3-for-3 at the plate. Right behind him was Austin Harrison who collected two hits in the game. Jacob Deatley, Wyatt Condo, Hunter Chain and Brian Smith all tallied one hit a piece against Trace.
“Three good wins in a row for this team,” said Indians Head Coach Tim Hunt after the game. “At the plate we had some good discipline tonight. We’re hitting the ball hard. We brought up a freshman in Austin Harrison and he hit the ball hard every time he came up so that’s exciting to see. We threw a sophomore today in Colin Bullock and this was only his second outing for us. He pitched well and was around the strike zone and our defense played defense behind him. It was a good clean game for us. Like I said before, it seems like things are clicking for us so hopefully we can build off that and keep on rolling.”
