STRUTHERS, OH- A very young Lisbon team gained some valuable experience on Tuesday night. Unfortunately, it came at the expense of their 2019 season. Through all the thrills and struggles of the season, the seniors of this Blue Devil team led by example, right down to the last out on defense where the school’s most dominant pitcher of all time ended his Blue Devil career with a strikeout. The 311th of his outstanding career.
The Devils left it all out on the field and the way any of us would want to go out- with no regrets.
The Blue Devils fell behind early and couldn’t come back in an 8-2 loss to Warren JFK on Tuesday. The Eagles jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first and never looked back. JFK opened up scoring in the first inning when Jordan Edmondson scored on a passed ball, and an attempt to throw the runner out at third. Cam Hollobaugh drove a sac fly to right field to make the game 2-0.
Hollobaugh was the winning pitcher for John F. Kennedy Catholic. He surrendered two runs on three hits over seven innings, striking out ten. The most impressive portion of Hollobaugh’s night was the composure he maintained when Lisbon tried to agitate his rhythm with baserunners throughout the game.
Logan Bell took the loss for Lisbon. He went six innings, allowing eight runs on eight hits and striking out ten. The Blue Devil senior goes out the all-time leader in strikeouts in a season, and in a career. Bell will attend the University of Akron next year and join the Zips pitching staff.
