The Whitko Junior Varsity baseball team played well, but ultimately fell to Peru on the road 9-5. Tyler Veach keyed a four run second inning with a two base blast over the centerfielder’s head, then came around to score on a clutch two-run single by Carter Cureton to get the Cats on the board. Blaine Stump added a two-run double later in the inning, but the team’s offense managed just one more hit for the game, despite hitting the ball hard, often right at Peru defenders. Peru answered with 6 runs in the bottom of the fourth, and then held on for the win. Whitko will be back in action Thursday at home against Tippecanoe Valley.
