lose two games
Hitting woes spelled doom last week for the Potts Camp baseball team.
The Cardinals had just five hits in two games and suffered 8-0 and 18-1 setbacks to division rivals Hickory Flat and West Union.
Potts Camp kept it close at Hickory Flat on Tuesday, March 22, until the fifth inning. Thats when the Rebels scored four runs to go up by eight.
We played decently this game, coach Jeff King said. Were just not hitting the ball right now.
The Cardinals had three hits in the eight-run loss one each from Nathan Smith, Eric Tucker and Korbin Stanton.
Eric Tucker was the losing pitcher. Jake Howell tossed one inning in relief.
The winning pitcher for Hickory Flat was Daniel Tatum. Craig Sharp had multiple hits. Tatum had a triple, while Nick Moore and Nathan Clifton connected for doubles.
Potts Camp could muster only two hits in the 17-run loss at home Thursday to West Union. Dustin Minor and Kurt Sanders had one each.
We didnt play very well, King said. We made several errors. West Union is a good team, but we helped them a lot.
Howell took the loss from the mound. Stanton and Shane Campbell threw in relief.
The Cardinals (1-6 overall and 1-3 in the division) were scheduled to host Jumpertown on Tuesday of this week.
They then visit Myrtle Friday, April 1, at 5 p.m. and go to DeSoto Central Saturday, April 2, for a 12 noon matchup.
