Fairfield varsity baseball is now 22-4 after defeating Oskaloosa 2-1 on the road Tuesday night in a non-conference duel that saw the Trojans come-from-behind for the too-many-times-to-counth-time.
After surrendering a run in the home-half of the first, Fairfield buckled down defensively and held the Indians scoreless the rest of the way with senior Kosta Papazoglou pitching 6 2/3 innings of one hit baseball that saw him allow zero earned runs and strikeout 13 while walking just four over 111 pitches thrown. Junior Elan Ledger got the final out of the game after throwing two pitches to earn the save.
Papazoglou was also the only Trojan to hit safely multiple times, going 2-3 with a walk drawn. Although Fairfield managed only five hits, they were able to double their total base runners with five drawn walks.
FHS scored their two runs in the top of the seventh before the K-Pap/Ledger hold happened, securing their 22nd victory of the season with just two games remaining before the playoffs begin on July 19.
FHS travels to Wilton tonight and will host Solon on Tuesday.
