BLANCHESTER – Clinton-Massie spoiled Blanchester’s Senior Night with a 16-3 five-inning win over the Wildcats in non-league baseball action at Bott Field.
The Wildcats, 10-10 on the year, had just two hits. BHS pitchers walked 11 and the defense committed six errors.
“That is a recipe for disaster,” Blanchester coach Aaron Lawson said. “Good news is we play (Wednesday). We have a chance to bounce back quick and sweep this one under the rug.
Trenton Czaika had the two Blanchester hits and drove in a run.
The Falcons, 13-6 with the win, got a complete game pitching performance from Dom Kerns, who went five innings and did not strike out a batter.
“He was good at pounding the strike zone and keeping the ball down,” CM coach Brian Camp said. “He did not strike out a batter, pitching to contact and allowing his defense to work.”
For the Clinton-Massie offense, Tyler Lewis had three hits, scored three runs and drove in two runs. Bryan Kennedy had three RBI and scored three times.
