Short-handed Tigers suffer defeat
The Crothersville baseball team only had nine players on Monday against South Central, and it resulted in a tough 26-0 defeat in five innings.
It was the first time all season the Tigers didn’t record a hit in the game. Matthew Clouse was on the mound for Crothersville, and after getting into a jam with the bases loaded and no outs in the first inning, Clouse pitched out of it, only allowing one run.
But the Tigers couldn’t hold off South Central like that for much longer, as the Rebels recorded 19 hits to account for their 26 runs.
Due to COVID-19 and injuries, Crothersville will likely be short-handed for the next couple of weeks, as well. They play next on Thursday against West Washington.
