The Southwest baseball team had a successful weekend in the Purdy Tournament finishing 3rd>

Friday we lost to Purdy 13 to 3 with Logan Deason as the starting pitcher.  We were down 5-3 in the 5th when Purdy put on a hitting clinic.  As atrange as it may sound we played well on both offense and defense.  Jay Fields went 2 for 3 at the plate scoring 2 runs while Jarrett Pike, Logan Deason, and Vinny Suchowski each had an RBI.

We played a second game Friday night beating Clevers JV team 6 to 5.  Jarrett Pike pitched well and got the win but unfortunately our defense wasn't very good with 4 of Clevers 5 runs being unearned.  Mason Owens and Tanner Leonhardt each had 2 hits with an RBI.  Jay had one hit and an RBI as did Logan Deason and Austin Pippin.

We won the 3rd place game Saturday over Exeter 20 to 0.  Jay Fields gave up one hit and struck out 8 while walking no-one for the 5 inning win.  Tanner Leonhardt went 5 for 5 with 5 RBI's. Austin Pippin had 3 hits and 3 RBI's with Jay Fields collecting 2 hits and 3 RBI's.  Eli Atkinson had a double while driving in 2 as Tanner Hacket went 3 for 4 with an RBI and Logan Deason collected 2 hits and 1 RBI.

We play again Thurs at home vs Wheaton at 4:30
