The Big Walnut baseball team made a lot of noise at the plate during its spring trip, outscoring opponents 44-5 after dropping its season opener 11-10.
Friday’s finale, though, was headlined by the pitchers as Wes Coey, Ryne Conley and Kenny Schneider combined on a three-hit shutout to lead the Golden Eagles to a 6-0 win over Valley (PA) High School in Myrtle Beach.
Coey tossed the first five innings, scattering three hits while striking out eight. Conley came in to work a 1-2-3 sixth and Schneider finished things up, striking out one as part of a 1-2-3 seventh.
The offense certainly still did its part. Big Walnut plated a pair of runs in the first before adding another in the third and three more in the fourth to smooth out the scoring summary.
Conley collected a game-high two hits for BW while CJ Rockwell had a hit, two RBI and a run scored, Nathan Lawyer drove in a pair and Jacob Daniels finished with a hit, an RBI and a pair of runs scored. He also walked twice.
When the Eagles (4-1) return home they’ll take on visiting Dublin Jerome in non-league action Wednesday at 5 p.m. After that, they’ll open league play against visiting Canal Winchester Friday at 5 p.m.
