The Greenwood High Baseball Team improved their regular season and region record to 4-1 as they defeated the Westside Rams Tuesday in Anderson. Rusty Hughes played a dual role offensively and defensively in the Eagle’s victory over Westside. Not only did Hughes pitch a complete 3 hit game, he used his offensive skills hitting a double and producing an RBI.
Hughes held the Rams at bay most of the night fanning 14 and giving up only one earned run. In the second inning, Hughes doubled in Gatlin Minick who had walked and Greenwood held that lead until the fifth inning when they tacked on 3 more with a wild pitch by the Westside pitcher and a 2 run single by Bryce Fowler. Emerald will host the Eagles at Lander on Thursday evening beginning at 6:00 p.m.
