You could kind of see it coming. After last Monday’s huge — albeit losing — effort against Harrisburg, Massac County’s Patriot baseball team went flat as a flitter for a couple of games.

The Pats fell to Murphysboro last Tuesday by a score of 10-0 as Mitchell Rose held the Pats to just four hits, and the Red Devils scored in four of their seven at bats.

A big ole five spot by Murphy in the third inning spelled doom for the Patriots.

Bryce McClellan started and took the loss for Massac.

The boys followed that lackluster performance with a 12-0 shellacking at the hands of the Benton Rangers on Saturday in a game that was re-scheduled from Friday.
