Blanchester JV baseball dumped by Lions 15-2

The Blanchester junior varsity baseball team was defeated by New Richmond 15-2 Monday.

James Compton drove in a run and Justin Myers scored a run, coach Andrew Freeman said.

“I believe we can be much more competitive than we were and must come together with a complete team effort the rest of the week,” Freeman said.

On Friday, the Wildcats played Bethel-Tate in an unofficial game, Freeman said. The game ended in a 10-10 tie.

Nate Moore and Wesley Moore both had hits for BHS. Wesley Moore drew two walks and scored twice. Nate Moore score one run.

“We drew quite a few walks, were aggressive on the basepaths and produced a couple of productive outs,” the BHS coach said. “We are constantly working to improve our situational awareness and ability to execute plays. I felt like (this game) served as a good learning experience in those areas.”
