Jr. Legion bows out in loss

Shelby County Jr. Legion baseball took their final bow of the summer on Monday, as they played catch up to Clark County Legion and never quite could, 11-9.

Shelby County out-hit Clark County 9 to 7. Clark gave out 11 walks and had four errors. Shelby only gave out five walks, but booted the ball six times. The problem for Shelby was Clark got their runs in bunches and kept the pressure on Shelby to come back.

Clark County jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first half inning and set the tone. Two of just five walks issued by Shelby County pitchers, a single, and three of the six Shelby errors in the game, played a part.

Shelby had their lead-off man at 3rd in the 1st, but couldn’t get him home. They started catching up and got on the board in the 2nd.

Tristan Warner drew a lead-off walk and went to 2nd on an error. Trevor Easton, the Shelby starting pitcher, singled with one out. Mark Jones lifted a sacrifice fly, scoring Warner.

Josh Overbeck doubled and drove Easton in. Derek Moschenrose followed with an RBI-single, making it a 1-run ball game after two innings, 4-3.

Clark made it a 2-run game with a run in the 3rd, off a pair of doubles, 5-3. Shelby responded and got that run back. Nic Hutchinson led off with a single and, with two outs, Warner singled Hutchinson in.

Tyler Kemper singled and Easton walked. With the bases loaded and a chance to claim the lead, a ground out ended the opportunity.

It was still a 1-run game in the top of the 5th, 5-4, when Clark put on another rally. A base hit, a walk, an error, and two more singles, made it 7-4. With two outs, a 2-run single made it 9-4.
