CM shrugs off slow start, whips Washington 12-2

News Journal Report

ADAMS TOWNSHIP — After a slow start, the Clinton-Massie baseball team rolled to a 12-2 win over Washington Wednesday in a six-inning South Central Ohio League game at Paul Schwamberger Field.

The Falcons are 4-0 overall and 1-0 in the SCOL.

“I view Court House as being one of the better teams in the league, so that’s a nice way to get the league started with a win,” Clinton-Massie coach Brian Camp said.

On a blustery day at PSF, the Falcons trailed 2-0 early.

But thanks to a couple Washington errors, a couple walks and a big hit by JT Wolf, the Falcons plated five runs in the fourth to take the lead for good, Camp said.

Wolf doubled down the leftfield line then scored on a single up the middle by Max Murray.

Massie added a run in the fifth and then finished things off with six runs in the sixth inning.

“It was windy so we figured the team with the fewest miscues would win the game,” said Camp. “They just committed a few errors later in the game and we capitalized on their mistakes.

“We only had seven hits, so we made the most out of what we had to work with.”

Trampler’s performance on the mound continued a trend of solid pitching for the Falcons in the early going.

“Our pitchers are really gutting it out,” said Camp. “They have been working through a little adversity here early in the season and their performance is to be commended.”
