The 8th grade baseball team dropped a close one Monday night to the Clinton Prairie Gophers 3-2. With the Stars playing their best game of the season, it was not enough to defeat the Gophers.
The Gopher pitching was superb. Allowing only three hits, keeping our bats at bay with a good mix of off speed pitches.
Our defense was very good along with excellent pitching performances from Blake Miller and Jake Johnson. Miller pitched 6 strong innings, 2 earns runs on four hits, four strikeouts and two walks. Johnson pitched a scoreless seventh, striking out two of the three batters he faced.
Next up is Tri-West at home on Wednesday starting at 6:00 pm.
