The PHS varsity baseball team struggled through a tough week, losing four games.
The Panthers (1-15) lost two of them at the South Callaway Cluster in Mokane, Saturday, falling to the host team and Blair Oaks.
The game against South Callaway was tied at zero going into the top of the fifth, when Palmyra scored its lone run on a lead-off single by Ethan Tallman, who stole second, moved to third on a passed ball and scored on a fielder’s choice grounder by Rylan Compton.
But, from there, South Callaway scored three in the bottom of the inning and three more in the sixth while blanking the Panthers the rest of the way.
Gavin Greving started on the mound and went 5.2 innings giving up all six runs, only one of which was earned. He was touched for eight hits and four walks while striking out two.
Blair Oaks pounded Palmyra with nine hits, including a home run and two doubles in winning 14-2.
The Panthers were trailing by 14 going into the fifth inning when they scored their two runs on their only three hits of the game, singles by Rayce Ragar, Colby Cook and Raeson Miller, with help by a Blair Oaks fielding error.
Palmyra also took a 10-0 loss at Hannibal the day before.
The Pirates scored three in the second, three in the fourth and four in the fifth, walking off on an two-out RBI single.
Cook and Compton shared the pitching duties for Palmyra.
The Panthers also lost a Clarence Cannon Conference contest, 13-2, at home to Centralia during Senior Night last Tuesday.
Centralia scored two in the first, and two in the second and were leading 5-0 going into the bottom of the fifth when Palmyra rallied to cut the deficit to three.
One of the seniors, Clayton Deming, hit a two-out RBI double and Jon Lundberg walked with the bases loaded, before Centralia ended the rally.
The visitors got the two runs back in the sixth and added seven in the seventh to seal the outcome.
Tallman started and went five innings, striking out 10, but also gave up five earned runs on six hits and four walks.
Drew Comer and Ty Haskins pitched in relief.
This week, the Panthers were scheduled to travel to Liberty, Ill., Monday, and play their conference finale at South Shelby, Thursday, before helping host the Palmyra/Quincy Notre Dame Slam Friday and Saturday.
They then cap the regular season at Kirksville, May 10.
