Maroons fall short to West Vigo, 4-2
Sports Editor

Late-season struggles continued for Robinson High School's baseball team Friday night (May 4).

The Maroons played their fourth game of the week and lost for the third time, falling to West Vigo, Ind., in a non-conference contest on Senior Night, 4-2.

A two-run home run in the top of the first gave West Vigo a lead they would not relinquish, although the Maroons would answer with a run in the bottom of the first to keep the game close. West Vigo tacked on single runs in the third and fourth innings to make the score 4-1, while Robinson plated a run in the bottom of the fifth, but was unable to get any closer.

Landon Roy led RHS at the plate with two singles and a run scored, while Ethan Williams singled and knocked in a run. Cade Slaughter added a base hit, Lance Wesner drove in a run and Kade Lassen scored a run.

Parker Johnson took the loss on the mound, allowing four runs, three earned, on six hits and three walks in four innings. Roy went the rest of the way, walking two batters and striking out five in three scoreless innings of relief.

In a freshman-sophomore game that preceded the varsity contest, Robinson dropped a 15-5 decision.

Cole Johnson and Wrigley Young led the RHS (4-10) offense with two singles and a run scored apiece, while Tyler Weber added a base hit and a run scored. Wylie Bonnell and Owen Austin each had a single and Chris Goff and Chris Jones each scored a run.

Sawyer Hoalt suffered the loss on the mound, allowing five runs, four earned, on four hits, while walking four and striking out two in two innings. Ethan Shidler gave up six runs, four earned, on three hits, while walking seven and striking out two in two innings and Johnson allowed four runs, three earned, on three hits and a walk in an inning of relief.
