SPRINGFIELD – Eight days after they were originally supposed to start the high school baseball season, Nebraska City finally had its first pitch on Friday in Springfield. Their first three games were postponed due to weather or field conditions.
Trent Fahey went 2-3 with a double, a walk, 3 RBI’s and 2 runs scored, and the Pioneers (1-0) opened the year with a 6-2 victory over Platteview (0-1).
Quintin Holman, back after missing all of last season with an injury, secured the win on the mound, going four innings, giving up a run on four hits and striking out two. Bryce Levy earned the save after three innings of work.
Jakob Richards was charged with the loss. He lasted two and a third inning, allowing five runs on six hits and two strikeouts.
Nebraska City finished with 8 total hits. Levy, Fahey and Jordan Williams each had two hits.
The Pioneers were scheduled to play Platte Valley in Yutan on Saturday, but due to rain the game has been postponed to a later date. They will play again Monday at Norris.
Platteview will be at Gretna Saturday. However, rain is in the forecast all day for eastern Nebraska all day.
Games today in Yutan are postponed to a later date. Back in action Monday at Norris. V/JV at 4:30/6:30.
