The varsity Cloverdale baseball team traveled to Edgewood for WIC play Tuesday, April 17, falling to the host Mustangs, 6-2.

The Clovers were the first on the scoreboard, plating a run in the top of the third, but Edgewood answered right back, plating three of their own in the bottom of the frame.

The Mustangs tacked on another run in the fourth and two more in the sixth for a 6-1 advantage.

Cloverdale was able to score one more run, in the top of the seventh, but it was not enough.

Jaren Rossok, Parker Watts, Nick Winders and Zach Nees led Cloverdale, each with one hit. Watts and Winders each had an RBI and Brayden Blevins and Jack Havenor each scored a run.

On the mound, Rossok was solid, throwing 83 pitches in six innings. He allowed six runs (five earned) on nine hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

Coach Jim Spencer and his Cloverdale softball team couldn’t hold up to the high-powered Edgewood offense, falling, 10-0.

Makenzie Allen, Kiley Shedron and Sky Lowe each had a double for the Clovers.

Macie Couch began the game in the circle for Cloverdale. She threw 61 pitches in 3.0 innings. She allowed seven runs (six earned) on six hits while walking one.

Phoebe McDonald entered the game in relief. She threw 20 pitches in one inning and allowed three runs, all earned, on five hits.
