Tigers edged by Mountaineers
Leaving runners in scoring position and a few key mistakes proved costly for the Adairsville baseball team Thursday night in a 3-2 home Region 6AAA loss to North Murray.
Adairsville led 2-1 through four innings, behind the strong pitching of Sam Seaman, but single runs by North Murray in the fifth and sixth innings led to a 3-2 loss for the Tigers.
The Mountaineers left eight runners on base and managed only three hits, but posted runs when it mattered most. The game deciding run in the sixth was unearned and came on a pair of walks and a Tigers’ error.
Seaman (5 IP, 3R, 2ER, 3H, 6BB, 5K) logged the first five innings on the mound for Adairsville and was tagged with the loss. Kyler Pelfrey (2 IP, 0R, 0H, 0BB, 4K) worked the final two innings for the Tigers.
Garrett Mishoe and Seaman each had an extra base hit and finished with two hits each. Corey Nation, Halen Huskins, Taylor Whitley, and Caden Gibbs added one hit apiece.
The Mountaineers improved to 6-3 overall and 1-0 in region play.
Adairsville (3-7, 0-1) travels to Ringgold Friday at 5:55pm and plays at Coahulla Creek Saturday at 4pm.
