CHURUBUSCO — Churubusco’s baseball team fell to Carroll 9-0 on Monday evening.

All nine runs for the Chargers came in the first inning. The Eagles gave up eight hits in the first inning, including a homerun.

“They ripped of so many hits and they set the tone,” said head coach Jason Pierce. “We had errors that didn’t help us. The lead should’ve been stopped at four. That may have intimidated our pitcher. We didn’t walk too many, so it’s ok to put the ball over the plate.”

Colin Mullins came in to pitch for the last six innings and gave up zero runs and recorded six strikeouts.

“Colin came in and was gem for us,” said Pierce. “Playing basketball may help him stay focused. Sometimes he comes in and performs so well, like the sectional basketball game.”

Pierce says the team is heading in the right direction moving forward.

“We’re getting better,’ said Pierce. “You can see that we got better as the game went on. We’re starting our conference games at a good time.”
