”We hit the ball well. We didn't strike out much,” Holloway said. “We had good at-bats.”
Mt. Vernon is 15-5 this season and 3-1 in the South Seven Conference. The Orphans entered the game unbeaten in the conference and are now 3-1. Centralia dropped to 7-5 overall.
“We're worried about ourselves,” Holloway said. “If we win we come to play everyday, we're going to have a chance at the end. If we don't, then somebody else is going to win it.”
Mt. Vernon hosts Breese Central today before a road trip Thursday to Belleville Althoff.
