OWENSVILLE — The Potosi Trojans put an end to a seven-game losing streak with a break-out win over Owensville on Monday. Having been the recipient of two straight 10-run-rule losses in their last two games, the Trojans turned the tables on the Dutchmen as they put together an 11-run fifth to secure a 13-3, five-inning win.
Potosi (2-7) led 2-1 going into their fifth-inning at-bats, and after they secured the double-digit lead for relief-pitcher Ethan Short, the sophomore hurler cut off the Dutchmen’s efforts to keep the game going at two runs. Short pitched the last three-plus innings after an injury to starter Dakota Glore.
Glore was still able to play as he went 3-4 with the bat to drive in three of Potosi’s runs. Lane Mercille was also 3-4 for a four RBI game. Colby Eckhoff had two singles, and five players had one single each as the entire team contributed in putting a stop to their losing streak.
Potosi will be back in conference action this afternoon when they host the Central Rebels.
