Ebarb Rebels showing progress

By Daniel Jones, editor

After a choppy start to the season, the Ebarb Rebels baseball team shows signs of progression and coming together, winning four of their last six games.

The Rebels went down in defeat on April 2, losing 16-8 to Evans.

The Rebels scored four runs in the sixth inning on hits by Hunter Barnes, Garrett Rivers, Trayce Ezernack, and Robert Meshell.

Ezernack was on the mound for Ebarb, going four innings and allowing five runs on seven hits while striking out four and walking one.  He was relieved by Jacob Lovelady, who pitched two-thirds of an inning, and Alec Remedies, who pitched one-third of an inning.

Days before, on March 27, the Rebels traveled to Pleasant Hill and soundly defeated the Eagles 13-3.

The rebels started strong, opening up scoring in the first inning on two runs after Garrett Rivers singled.  Three runs were scored in the seventh inning thanks to Lovelady and Barnes knocking in runners.  Barnes led the offense with three hits in five at-bats.

Zachary Faircloth was on the mound for the Rebels and lasted seven innings, allowing six hits and three runs on nine strikeouts.

On March 26, the Rebels took on the Negreet and held off an offensive onslaught by the Indians to come out with the W.

Ebarb built an eight-run lead by the start of the second inning, leading the Indians 10-2 before Negreet bats came alive and scored five runs in the bottom of the second inning and two more throughout the course of play.

Rivers started the offense for the Rebels, hitting a double and scoring three runs.

Lovelady was on the mound, allowing 12 hits and nine runs over seven innings with one strikeout.
