JIH splits doubleheader with Gretna

Johnson Imperial Homes' Sam Reimer catches an infield fly ball
in the second inning of their second game against Gretna
Saturday at Duncan Field.

The Johnson Imperial Homes American Legion baseball team is in the midst of a grueling end to the regular season.

JIH plays six games and will compete in a tournament in Omaha in a matter of eight days. Saturday marked the beginning of the tough stretch with a doubleheader against Gretna.

Walks by the JIH pitching staff ultimately led to an 8-3 loss in game one, but JIH bounced back with a 10-8 victory in game two. After tallying just three hits in the first game, Hastings pounded 13 hits in the nightcap.
