A day that featured all types of weather turned in to a long afternoon as the Buckaroos struggled to come up with timely hits and dropped two games to the Lions.
In addition to the weather, Lowry was also hampered by defensive miscues.
“We didn’t hit very well throughout the day and could never get ahead,” said sophomore pitcher Dusty Bryan.
In game one the weather hit hard, a little bit of everything from hail, rain, and wind. It was a struggle to get an opportunity to put runs on the board and Yerington seemed to be untouched by it all and took game one 7-1.
“Pitching and defense were decent, but our lack of offense isn’t making their defense work,” said coach James Williams.
In the second game the Buckaroos seemed to have a little better hitting, but not the best which led to a 6-4 defeat by the Lions once again.
When asked if weather was an excuse, freshman catcher Donovan Brumm answered, “both teams had to play in the same weather, so weather was no excuse. I thought we were beaten by ourselves, we need to practice on our hitting and scoring.”
“Inabilities on offense are costing us wins right now,” said Williams.
The Bucks will be back in action to take on the Spring Creek Spartans this weekend with a different mind set and hoping for better hitting and getting runs in for a better outcome.
