Pratt High School baseball team won a first game against Larned 11-1, but lost the second stand 9-11.
The Greenback baseball team made their second appearance of the season on Tuesday, April 2 against Larned. They won the first game but fell the second game.
The boys came out strong in the first game, getting up 3-0 by the second inning. Defensive play held the Indians as they continued to score and took the first game in only five innings, 11-1.
“We pitched and played good defense and we had some really good, timely hits,” said head coach Ron Hill, “I felt like the guys did a good job and I’m really proud of them for that.”
However, the second game was a different story. Pratt kept their lead until the third inning when Larned came back, 7-6.
The boys weren’t able to take back their lead and lost, 9-11, bringing their record to 3-1.
Hill attributes their loss to just a bad day on the mound that transferred to all aspects of their game.
“There’s an old saying in baseball: you’re only as good as your next starting pitcher,” said Hill, “It was a bad game but we’re going to work harder and make those adjustments at practice.”
The boys play at home against the Hoisington Cardinals next Tuesday.
