The junior varsity baseball team lost a wild 16-12 decision to visiting Terre Haute South on Thursday night.
The Braves scored six runs in the top of the seventh inning and held off a three run rally by the Knights in the bottom of the inning. Codey Jones and Michael Medearis reached base in the inning before a Graig Bass fly ball brought home both runners when the ball dropped between fielders.
John Reberger then reached base before Nick Wells reached first despite striking out when the ball got past the catcher. Brian Walden then reached when he was hit by a pitch, but Bobby Woods got a strikeout to end the game.
