A pitchers’ duel from the start, both teams went scoreless in the first two innings. The Braves were the first to get on the board in the bottom of the third inning, later adding runs in the bottom of the fourth and sixth en route to the 5-1 win.

The Arabians picked up their lone run in the sixth inning, scored by Wyatt Douglas. Throughout the contest, the Pendleton Heights offense struggled to get anything going against Terre Haute South Vigo, scratching out just two hits and striking out 12 times. Douglas and Zach Lawhon were responsible for the Arabians’ two hits.

Pendleton Heights ended the season with a 15-16 overall record, going 6-8 in Hoosier Heritage Conference play.

After beating the Arabians in the first game of the day, Terre Haute South Vigo would go on to lose the championship game 5-0 later that evening to Cathedral.
