BATAVIA – The Blanchester baseball team was defeated 8-1 by Clermont Northeastern Tuesday at Midland Field in a Cincinnati Reds Showcase game.
The Wildcats, 8-9 on the year, had too many strikeouts and pop outs, coach Aaron Lawson said.
Adam Frump pitched well in the loss. Blanchester trailed 3-1 going to the sixth but errors proved costly.
Hayden Tedrick had two hits. Brody Rice, Cole Ficke and Dustin Howard had one hit each. Christian Stubbs drove in a run with a sacrifice fly.
