DARKE COUNTY — Here are the scores and stats from the high school softball and baseball games from April 1 – 3.

Greenville softball (4-2, 2-1)

GREENVILLE — In extra innings, the Lady Wave softball team lost 6-5 to Butler at home on April 1. Head coach Jerrod Newland said while the better team won this game, it was a disappointing game to lose. They had their chances to win or tie the game late, but couldn’t make the game-winning play.

“They wanted it more, they played better than us. Bottom line, you can’t leave kids on base. In the last two innings, we get two on and left four on base. In the last two innings, we had a chance to win it,” Newland said.

Senior Ava Cyphers got Butler on the board first with a two-run home run in the second inning.

Greenville got on the board in the bottom of the third inning. Junior Kylar Arnett drove in a run followed by a two-run hit from senior Mahayla Cook. Senior Addie Burke capped off the inning with a RBI double to put Greenville up 4-2.

The Lady Aviators regained the lead in the fifth. Sophomore Kaylee Worrell hit a RBI double followed by another two-run home run by senior Kylee Kleiner.

Newland said the team didn’t make enough plays early and gave Butler some extra outs. The Lady Aviators took advantage and scored some runs off those mistakes.

“You can’t score in two innings and win games. We were just very sloppy today. Didn’t make some plays,” Newland said.

Senior Savannah Leach tied the game at 5-5 in the bottom of the fifth. She doubled and then scored on a wild pitch. In the sixth inning, Leach got three outs herself on defense. After a lead off single, she made an unassisted double play then got the groundout to end the inning.

In the bottom of the seventh and the bottom of the eighth, Greenville got two base runners on with two outs. Both times, the rally started too late as they couldn’t score in each scoring situation.

Sophomore Jami Brockert scored the game-winning run for Butler in the top of the eighth.

Junior Zoey Burns pitched all eight innings for Greenville and had four strikeouts. Junior Addison Suess had only two strikeouts in eight innings for Butler as both teams made a lot of contact in this game.

If the weather cooperates, Greenville will host a double header on April 6. They will play Centerville at 11:45 a.m. and then play Portsmouth Notre Dame at 3:30 p.m. They will then play at Tippecanoe on April 9 at 5 p.m.
