Buckeye 13, Block 2
BUCKEYE, La. — It was not a good Monday afternoon for the Block Bears at the plate, on the mound or in the field in their loss to the Buckeye Panthers in a game that took just five innings to play.
The Bears had just two hits, walked six batters, hit two batters and committed five errors. The only good thing to come out of this game for Block was that it held Buckeye to three hits. The Panthers blew the game open with a five-run rally in the bottom of the first inning followed by a six-run barrage in the bottom of the second for an 11-1 lead.
Block (3-3) next plays at the Harrisonburg Tournament at 4 p.m. Thursday against host Harrisonburg.
