The Cass baseball team fell behind early Wednesday at Kennesaw Mountain and lost to the Mustangs, 6-3.
Kennesaw Mountain scored a run in the first inning on a wild pitch to go ahead 1-0, but it was a five-run third inning that became insurmountable for the Colonels.
Five walks, a hit batsman, a sacrifice fly, and two singles plated five runs for the Mustangs in the decisive third inning.
Clay Means and Bailey Campbell had run producing singles in the fourth to score three runs for Cass, but it would not be enough.
Cody Johnson (2.2 IP, 6ER, 1H, 5BB) started on the mound for the Colonels and was saddled with the loss. Austin Pruett (3.1 IP, 0R, 6H, 1BB, 1K) worked the final 3-plus innings on the mound for Cass.
Means (triple, RBI) and Campbell (2 RBI) both finished with a pair of hits. Jake Collum, Steven Spell, and Zach Yancey had the other Colonels’ base hits.
Kennesaw Mountain improved to 6-5 on the season with the win.
Cass, now 7-5, will host Adairsville Friday at 5:55pm
