PENDLETON — If Mt. Vernon couldn’t even its Hoosier Heritage Conference baseball record, it made sure Pendleton Heights didn’t do so either.
The Marauders gladly settled for half the pie with the Arabians Friday night at Bill Stoudt Field, blasting PH in the nightcap 10-5 after falling 9-2 in Game 1.
MV (9-12, 4-6 HHC) erupted for six runs in the bottom of the fourth of the second contest, two unearned. The Marauders got back-to-back, two-RBI hits from Joey Turner and Zach Norman, off different pitchers.
It was the second double-digit output for the Marauders this season, and with the split PH moved to 14-7 on the year, 3-5 in the HHC.
“Sometimes, I think hitting is contagious, and I think that’s what happened (the second game),” MV coach Scott Johnson said. “We got confidence, and we need to hit with confidence.”
