WHS reserve baseball blanked on one hit

News Journal Report

LEBANON — The Wilmington High School reserve baseball team was defeated by Lebanon 10-0 in six innings in a non-league game at LHS.

Nate Lakes had the only hit for the Hurricane, who falls to 0-3 on the year. Lakes reached first leading off the top of the sixth.

Jake Vaughan and Jason Wilson pitched for Wilmington. Vaughan was the starter and took the loss.

Alex Meyer walked and was hit by a pitch, the only other two times a WHS player reached base, coach Dustin James said.

“We were able to reduce the amount of physical and mental errors in this game compared to our opener at Little Miami, but if we are unable to produce base hits and runs, we are going to have a hard time winning against anyone,” James said. “Lebanon was very sound in their pitching and defense. They were disciplined at the plate and did not chase pitches. Even when behind in the count, they were able to remain focused and forced us to make plays. Lebanon is a very solid program who does a lot of things right, things that we need to continue to improve on in order to be successful at the JV level entering league play this week.”
