HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL / SOFTBALL

GREENVILLE — By Steve Shwarts

Herald-Banner Staff

  The Greenville Lions ended an 18-inning scoreless streak, but not in time to catch Denison in an 8-5 District 13-4A baseball loss on Tuesday at John Mason Field.

  Greenville had been shut out in its two previous games and the last inning of a loss to Wylie. The Lions finally broke through with five runs in the fifth inning after trailing 8-0 but could get no closer.

  “We’ve got to start earlier,” said Greenville coach Cody Salyers. “We have got to be ready from pitch number one. We have to do a better job of making adjustments. If something’s not working, you can’t keep doing it and expect a different result.”

  Greenville exploded with five runs in the fifth inning as Jacob Jarvis, Dillion Minick and Austin Craig all walked. Then Chris Hazlett singled, driving in Jarvis. Mason Burk’s sacrifice fly scored Minick. Luke Dyer then reached first on a Denison error that allowed Austin Craig to score. Travis Koger singled, scoring Hazlett. Dyer scored Greenville’s fifth run on a wild pitch.

  Denison built its 8-0 lead with two runs in the first inning, three in the third, one in the fourth and two in the fifth.

  Luke Thomas helped the Yellow Jackets grab the early lead with three hits and three runs batted in, while Clay Stubblefield scored three runs off three hits and Devon Blanton also had three hits and drove in a pair of runs.

  Greenville won the junior varsity game, 8-2.
