Errors doom Clover baseball

Amanda York

The Cloverdale varsity baseball team traveled to Nashville Tuesday evening, April 10, where they fell to the host Eagles of Brown County, 7-4.

“(It was) another great pitching night between Jaren Rossok and Nick Winders, but (we had) errors, four early in the game, and we just couldn’t overcome those E’s,” Cloverdale Head Coach Kent Bass said.

The Eagles jumped out to an early lead, 3-0, in the first inning and tagged on an insurance run in the second, third, fourth and fifth innings to make it 7-0.

The Clovers got to work in the sixth, scoring one run and added three more in the seventh, but were unable to overcome the deficit.

Haiden Harbert, Jake Winders and TJ Hagymasi led the Clovers with two hits each. Jaren Rossok, Parker Watts and Tyce Jackson each finished with one hit.

On the mound, Rossok went 4.1 innings. He threw 86 pitches, allowed seven runs (three earned) on nine hits while walking one and striking out one.

Winders came in, in relief, throwing 21 pitches in 1.2 innings. He allowed zero runs and just one hit while striking out three.

The Clovers will compete in the County Tournament, hosted by the Greencastle Tiger Cubs on Saturday, weather permitting. Games are set to begin at 10 a.m.
