The Fishers Tigers Varsity Baseball team (12-9/3-5) found themselves down 4-0 after the 1st inning to #5 Carmel, but played Carmel even for the rest of the game (even outhitting them for the final 6 innings). However, the 1st inning was too much for the Tigers to overcome as they fell to the Greyhounds 7-3.
After a rocky start, pitcher Gavin Kuzniewski (2-1) settled down and kept the Greyhounds off-balance allowing only 2 earned runs on 3 hits while striking out 5 after the 1st inning. Overall, Kuzniewski pitched 5 innings giving up 6 earned runs on 7 hits. Cody Jones pitched a scoreless 6th inning. Jones left the bases loaded as he struck out the Greyhound batter to end the inning.
Jack Braun led the Tiger offense with 2 hits and a run scored. Gavin Clayton finished with a hit and 2 RBI. JP Preston contributed a hit and scored 2 runs.
The Tigers return to HCC play on Wednesday when they host the Avon Orioles at 6pm.
