In a season where many things have gone against them, the Zionsville Eagles baseball team finally caught a few breaks when they hosted Avon in the penultimate game of the 2013 season Thursday, May 16.
Sophomore Grant Sloan threw a four-hit gem, and the offense was able to take advantage of two wild pitches for two runs as Zionsville earned a 2-0 Hoosier Crossroads Conference victory.
“It seems like it was the first time this year that we have had anything go our way,” Zionsville coach John Zangrilli said. “You can call it sour grapes or crying over spilled milk. I don’t know. We’ve had very few breaks go our way, but tonight they did. I guess that’s baseball.”
Offense was at a premium all night, but the Eagles didn’t need much with the way Sloan was throwing. He struck out only three batters, but induced multiple ground outs and scattered just four hits in going the distance for the win.
In only two innings did the Orioles get more than one runner on base.
