The Artesians faced the Hawks for the 2nd time of the season on Wednesday night. On a windy evening, the outcome wasn’t exactly what the Artesians wanted. The Decatur offense hit 5 home runs to take the win 10-5 over the Artesians.
In the top of the 1st inning Decatur hit 2 solo home runs to give them the lead early, but it didn’t last long. The Artesians loaded the bases in the bottom of the 1st with Lexi Lucas coming to the plate. Lexi hit a grand slam to give the Artesians the lead back at 4 to 2. Unfortunately the Artesians couldn’t get their offense going after that 1st inning, and Decatur was able to come back hitting 2 more solo home runs and a grand slam in the later innings.
Although the score makes it look like the game wasn’t close, the Artesians had several chances to score and just couldn’t push a run across. Martinsville will be back in action against conference opponent Plainfield at home Friday night at 5:30.
