The warmer weather seems to have been good for the Marietta Indians’ baseball team, who have won five of their last six games.
Last weekend, the Indians played in the Healdton Festival, where some solid pitching performances and strong offense helped propel them to win three of their four games.
With freshman Luis Rodriguez on the mound, the Indians defeated Healdton 7-2 in their opener. Jonathan Lohmeyer went two for two at the plate and Rodriguez went three for three with three RBIs.
The Indian’s only loss during their streak came against Wilson in their second game of the festival.
Marietta faced Stratford next, and Caden Erwin got the 10-1 win. Chris Rivera went two for two with two stolen bases, Dillon Trail went two for two with two RBIs, and Curry Walters went one for three with a double and two RBIs.
With Walters on the mound against Plainview JV, the Indians made quick work of their opponents, 9-1. Brad Kirk went two for three with a double and an RBI, Tucker Kirk was two for two with two stolen bases, and Rodriguez was three for three with a triple and two RBIs.
On Monday, Marietta celebrated senior night against Turner with a stellar performance by Lohmeyer, who went three for three on the night. Garret Flanagan was one for two with an RBI.
“Jon had an outstanding game on senior night,” said Head Coach Ron Norman. “He threw a no-hitter, striking out seven of the first nine batters he faced, and hitting a two-run homerun.”
The Indians run ruled Turner in three innings.
Tuesday, Marietta faced Ringling. Rodriguez pitched the Indians’ second no-hitter in two days as the Indians run-ruled the Blue Devils, 13-0.
