Cougars fight off Lions

RUSHVILLE — The Cougars of Greenfield-Central rallied in the opener of the doubleheader against Rushville and then cruised to a win in the second game to sweep the HHC double-dip Friday.

Greenfield trailed going into the bottom of the sixth inning in the opener, but rallied to tie the game in the sixth and get the winning run in the sixth in a 6-5 game.

Rushville jumped out to the 1-0 lead as James Brashaber homered to right-center field in the top of the first inning.

In the top of the second, Hunter Orme walked and Mark Busald singled to right. Brian Busald reached on an error and Orme scored to make it 2-0.

Brad Busald reached on a fielder’s choice and Mark Busald scored on a Greenfield error. With two outs, Brashaber singled to center to plate Brian Busald.

Three hits by Greenfield in the bottom of the fourth led to a pair of Cougar runs to cut the deficit to 4-2.

Rushville added a run in the top of the fifth as John Riddell reached on an error and Orme doubled to score Riddell.

The Cougars tied the game in the sixth and Jackson’s one-out single in the seventh gave the Cougars the 6-5 win.

Austin Niehoff and Brashaber both had two hits. Orme had a double and Mark Busald a single.

On the hill, Mark Busald went six innings, allowing four earned runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out two.

In the second game, the Cougars pounded out 10 hits in a 10-1 victory. Mike Busald started for the Lions allowing four earned runs in 4 1/3 innings on nine hits and one walk while striking out five. Brashaber pitched 1 2/3 innings allowing no earned runs on one hit and three walks while striking out three. Michael Tague tossed a scoreless inning in his varsity debut.

Niehoff had the lone hit for the Lions.

On Saturday, the junior varsity Lions traveled to Greenfield-Central and dropped a pair to the Cougars.

In the opener, the Lions scored five runs in the top of the first, but the Cougars rallied to win 15-5.

Offensively, Michael St. John and Michael Tague (one RBI) had two hits each.

In the second game, the Cougars posted a 13-0 victory.

The Lions threatened in the fourth as St. John, Chase Hamilton and Keith Tressler loaded the bases with no outs, but the Lions could not push across a run.
