Nolan Wosman hit a pair of home runs Monday night at Flower City Park to lead the Palmyra baseball team over Hallsville 11-5 for its fifth consecutive victory.
Wosman launched back-to-back solo shots with Jacob Kroeger in the first inning to give the host Panthers (8-1) the lead.
They never gave it back.
Drew Begley and Peyton Abbott each recorded run-scoring singles in the second to make it 5-0.
Wosman struck again later in the inning to line a three-run homer to right field.
“This was a good win over a quality team,” Palmyra coach Mark Loman said. “We hit a lot of line drives tonight and did not pop up many.”
Hallsville (8-3) scratched across two runs in the top of the third to cut its deficit to 8-2, but the visitors never got any closer.
Abbott stroked another RBI single for Palmyra in the bottom of the third.
Wosman came home on a passed ball in the fourth, moments before Kroeger scored on an RBI groundout off the bat of Corder Lehenbauer.
Hayden Hoerr started for Palmyra and pitched three innings while striking out six and allowing two runs.
Peyton Plunkett tossed four innings in relief to help the Panthers secure the win. Plunkett struck out six and allowed three runs (one earned).
Seven different players scored at least one run for Palmyra in the win.
The Panthers posted five extra-base hits, all by Wosman and Kroeger.
“I thought we were focused and ready to play even though weather was rough,” Loman said. “We still have a lot of things we can improve on.”
