ADAMS TOWNSHIP — Clinton-Massie rallied from a 6-1 deficit early and defeated Washington 10-6 Friday in a South Central Ohio League game at Paul Schwamberger Field.
The win keeps the Falcons atop the SCOL standings with a 7-0 mark. Overall, Massie is 11-2.
“A nice comeback win for us,” said CM coach Brian Camp.
The early hole came as a result of some shoddy defense.
“We just could not catch the baseball the first two innings,” said Camp.
The defense pushed starting pitcher Aric France out after two innings because of pitch count, Camp said. Weston Trampler entered the game on the mound and blanked the Blue Lions the rest of the way.
“Weston came in and really just dominated the rest of the game for us and defensively things improved,” said Camp. “He was nothing less than spectacular.”
The offense was good throughout, with Noah Greathouse hitting a solo homerun in the first and a two-out double in the sixth that tied the game. Later in the sixth, Trampler stroked a two-out single to put the Falcons on top 8-6. In all, Massie had five two-out hits.
“Those five hits with two outs were just big for us,” Camp said.
David Poynter had three hits on the day, one of which was a two-run single in the second to make it 6-5.
