Tecumseh’s varsity baseball team split its home double header on Monday, April 15, against visiting Saline.

The Indians won the first game 10-0 with Phil Carey earning the pitching win but lost the nightcap 7-4 with Ben Vannatter handed the loss.

“We hit the ball hard today and I thought our defense was solid,” said Tecumseh head coach Tom Bullinger. “I was a little nervous about not playing for over a week, especially defensively, but they did a good job today.”

The first game lasted six innings with Carey going the entire distance. He gave up just one hit while striking out eight and walking none. He pitched to 18 batters, the minimum for six innings of action.

“I thought Phil was outstanding today,” said Bullinger. “It was the best performance I have seen from him as a varsity baseball player. He was hitting his spots all game long. He gives a great chance to win when he pitches like that.”

Andrew Wood led the Indians’ offense with a 3-for-4 effort at the plate with a two-run homerun. a double, and five RBI.

Nick Cowen (double, 2 runs, RBI) and Casey Hunt (run) each went 2-for-3 at the plate.

Cowen started game two on the hill for Tecumseh (4-1 overall, 1-0 SEC) and pitched 2 2/3 innings, allowing four earned runs on three hits while striking out one and walking five.

Vannatter went in on relief and pitched 1 1/3 innings, giving up two earned runs on four hits while striking out one.

Jacob Britt was 1-for-3 with a three-run home run while Carey was 1-for-2 with a double.
