Panthers’ attack crushes Campbellsport

CAMPBELLSPORT – Plymouth pounded out a season-high 16 hits en route to an 18-0 thumping of Campbellsport in an Eastern Wisconsin Conference baseball game here Thursday evening.

The Panthers hiked their EWCleading record to 6-0 (10-1 overall) and stretch their winning streak to eight. The Cougars dropped to 4-2 in EWC play (6-2 overall).

Senior catcher Luke Held was 4-for-4 to spark the PHS offense. Jake Richards and Matt Olig cracked three hits each, followed by Zac Cain with two.

Junior Tyler Willeford led the Panthers in RBIs with four and Held and Cain had three apiece. Olig, Luke Hojnacki and Jake Steinhardt contributed two each. Held also led in runs with three.

Cain, who started on the mound, and Clay Henning and Hojnacki combined on a one-hit shutout. Cain, the winner, pitched three innings and allowed no hits and one walk while striking out three.

Henning gave up one hit and one walk, and struck out none in one inning of work. Hojnacki pitched the final frame (five-inning game due to 10-run rule) and allowed one walk to go with a strikeout.

The only hit for the Cougars was a leadoff single by Austin Narges in the fourth.

“We swung the bats really well. We had a good approach [at the plate] and really had fun out there,” said Panther head coach Butch Cain.

“We were comfortable at the plate and hit the ball to all fields.

“Our defense was solid. We made all the plays. Held called a great game [at catcher]. Held and the pitchers were all on the same page and mixed the pitches well,” said the coach.

The losing hurler was starter Ty Schmidt who threw three innings – surrendering 10 runs (all earned) on nine hits with three walks and one strikeout.
