BETHEL – Bethel-Tate jumped out to a 6-0 lead and held off East Clinton 6-3 Monday in SBAAC National Division baseball action.
“We played the best game we’ve played all year,” EC coach Brian Carey said. “We had five mental base-running errors, two pick-offs, two caught stealing when there was no sign and one taking home on a passed ball in the first couple innings. None of that should have happened.
“I took a chance at the end of the game sending (Matthew) Hall home from second on a single by (Austin) Arellano when we could have had the tying run on first with (Matt) Mitchell up. That was one me. We are so close, but can’t put a full seven (innings) together.”
