The three losses were pretty much snapshots of the season the boys are having. All three were competitive and all three were keyed by either a lack of hitting, an untimely error or two or just misplays. Throw in the fact that the young Pats just can’t seem to catch a break and you have a losing streak.
West Frankfort took their rematch with the Pats by a score of 6-1 as they plated a single run in the first off of Dalton Mitchell and followed that with a pair in the second.
After Massac got on the board in the sixth with a run that cut the Redbird lead to 3-1, West Frankfort put up three huge unearned runs in the bottom of the sixth to put the game on ice. With one out, West Frankfort coaxed a walk then welcomed a series of throwing errors by the Pats to push across three more big ones. ••• TO READ THE ENTIRE STORY ONLINE, PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THE PLANET'S e-EDITION •••
