Greenfield wins nightcap in nine innings

GREENFIELD — A win meant a chance to stay in the thick of the conference title chase next Friday against Shelbyville. A loss elevated the upcoming doubleheader against the Golden Bears into absolutely-need-a-sweep mode.

Thanks an offensive surge in the ninth inning of Game 2 of its doubleheader vs. Delta Friday night, Greenfield-Central stayed well within striking distance of claiming a second straight Hoosier Heritage Conference, downing the visiting Eagles 11-7 in nine innings. Delta took Game 1, 7-3.

The Cougars are now 11-7 overall and 6-2 in HHC play, a game behind 4A No. 7 Shelbyville (13-2), which moved to 7-1 in conference games with a two-game sweep of Yorktown Friday. The Golden Bears will travel up State Route 9 for the biggest double dip of the HHC season Friday.
