High school baseball
Rally falls short for LHS in 8-7 loss to Casey
LAWRENCEVILLE - Lawrenceville High School's baseball team suffered its sixth consecutive loss Thursday, but at least the Indians saw signs of encouragement.

Visiting Casey prevailed with an 8-7 win in a game which ended with LHS runners on second and third.

Lawrenceville (3-7, 0-3 LIC) battled back from an early 5-0 deficit to tie the game, before eventually falling short.

"We're scuffling right now," said LHS coach Bob Gher. "But as long as we say positive and keep focused on what we're doing, in the long run we're going to be OK. We're young, but we're learning."

Trailing 8-7 the Indians threatened in the bottom of the seventh. Thomas Mahrenholz walked to start the inning, and with one out Bryce Winningham singled to left. The runners moved to second and third on a passed ball, but Casey escaped the jam when Cody Steffey popped out and Ryan Seed flied to left.

Steffey pitched the first three innings for the Tribe and allowed five runs, four of which were earned. The sophomore gave up four hits, walked four and fanned three. Austin DeLoriea pitched 2 1/3 innings and gave up three runs on five hits. He walked none and fanned a batter. Slayton Dorney finished up with 1 2/3 innings on the mound. He retired all five hitters he faced, with a strikeout.

Winningham had two of the seven LHS hits, while Oliver Large's double was the team's only extra-base hit. Both players are freshmen.

Ryan Seed, Dorney, Jeff Baxter and Chase Shick - another freshman - added singles.

Seed and Large both scored two runs, while Dorney, Shick and Winningham all crossed the plate once.

The Indians tied the game in the bottom of the fifth at 5-5. Large doubled and eventually scored on Baxter's groundout.

After Casey scored three in the sixth, LHS responded with two in the bottom of the inning, with Winningham and Ryan Seed crossing the plate.

"We had some different guys contribute," Gher said. "It was a step in the right direction once we got going. It was good to see us play baseball the way it was supposed to be played."

LHS will travel to Marshall for a conference game on Monday.
