Richey dominates as Eagles top Devils

Zionsville works to build depth during busy stretch

Indianapolis — Things didn’t start off well for the Zionsville baseball team Monday, May 6, when they visited Pike.

But after allowing the first five runners to reach and two runs, Zionsville starter Cam Richey became flat out dominant, not allowing a hit the rest of his outing and retiring 15 of the final 16 batters he faced in the Eagles’ 6-2 win.

After playing Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4 — the Eagles have five games this week and four more next week.

“We have to create a little depth in our pitching rotation because we have five games this week and four next week,” Zionsville head coach John Zangrilli said. “That is a lot of baseball games. We started extending the pitching staff and Cameron Richey got his first start of the year tonight, and he has good stuff — we just haven’t had a chance to get past our first, second and third starters because of the weather. We had this part of May circled on our calendar as a time to see more pitchers and you saw two guys pitch well.”

Josh Kirkham went two perfect innings to get his first career save.

The Eagles were able to get some other non-regulars some playing time as well later in the game.

Zangrilli said getting some non-regulars in game situations is important in case their number is called in an important game late in the season.

“I have always been a believer in — if you have a uniform, be ready to play,” Zangrilli said. “I don’t care how old you are, what grade you are, if you are in this dugout, it’s because I have confidence in you and can put you in the game. There is no charity, in my opinion, this isn’t Little League. Every kid here gets a varsity letter because they are a varsity caliber player. They may not play every night, but they are capable.”

Trailing 2-0 after one, the Eagles’ bats came to life in the second inning.
