MERIDIAN 14, CONCRETE 3 (6)

The Meridian baseball team defeated Concrete 14-3 in six innings in a non-league game on Thursday, March 20, at Concrete.

Derek Campfield picked up his second win of the season for the Trojans, allowing just one hit, walking one and striking out seven.

Meridian jumped out to a five-run lead after two innings, and added five more in the third and four in the sixth to seal the win.

Despite the lopsided affair, Trojans coach Steve Slesk thought his team was a bit "sloppy."

"We were sloppier than we have been in our first two games," Slesk said in a phone interview.

Meridian did draw eight walks, showing good plate discipline, Slesk said.

"We had some good at-bats," he said.

Josh Hosick, Davis Phillips and Jake Plagerman all had two hits for Meridian.
