Ram OVC Loss, St. A Win

Shelbyville baseball (14-2, 3-1 OVC) beat Pana earlier in the week, but left a lot of men on base. They left men on base Friday against Monticello and lost 7-5. They bounced back on Saturday, beating St. Anthony, 11-3.

The Rams out-hit Monticello 10 to 5, but that didn't matter. The Rams gave the game away by booting four balls, missing signs and walking 11 batters in a 2-run loss. Once again, the Rams stranded base runners, 14 total. It was a bad time to play bad, as they dropped a conference contest they could have won.

Ram walks and errors gave Monticello a 2-0 lead after the first half-inning. The Rams worked their way back to a tie with arun in the bottom of the 1st and a run in the bottom of the 3rd. The Rams gave up a a 4-run inning in the 4th and put themselves in a bind, down 6-2.

The Rams got one of those runs back in the bottom of the 4th. The Rams counted coup against Monty's relief pitcher, Stokowski, and made it a 1-run ball game heading into the 7th, 6-5 Monty. Monticello got an insurance run in the 7th and the Rams still couldn't get players across the plate in the 7th and took a bitter defeat.

Though Eli Miller had a tough day pitching, walking seven batters in just three innings. However, he tied the game in the 3rd with a solo shot in the deepest part of center field. Three other Rams had multiple hits. Jake Keown's pitching and hitting as given the Rams a boost this spring. He hit 2-for-5. Luke Hatfield also hit 2-for-5, including two doubles and an RBI. Luke McConnell hit 2-for-4.
