What started out as a pitchers duel, ended in a lopsided loss with Red Mt. beating the OC 10-0. The Red Mt. pitcher only allowed 5 hits on the day, and the Eagles just could not string anything together, with OC getting shutout for the 4th time this season. Cannon Smith took the loss, going 5 innings and only giving up 4 runs. Some ill timed defensive miscues helped allow the game to get out of hand at the end. The Eagles continue the battle of Mt. Lions this week, with a 2 game series vs. rival Mt. Ridge Tuesday/Thursday.
Some days you tip your cap. The Red Mt. team was more talented and had more fight. We know that this week is measured by one thing anyway… Can we beat Mt. Ridge? That made this a bit of a trap game, so now we can focus on the task at hand. Should be a quality battle vs. a good Mt. Ridge team this year.
