Meuth pitched the game of his young high school baseball life, but the Eagles could not convert it into a win over Cameron last week. The Eagles got seven hits, but could not get them in a timely fashion.

Both teams scored all their runs in the third inning. Kogan Garrett got a one-out double and Donnie Havard singled him home. That was Lexington’s only run.

The Eagles had two hits in the second inning but a force out at second kept the Eagles from advancing further than second on two hits. A two-out single by Colin Wiggins in the fourth was followed by a Yoe error to get runners on first and second, but no hit followed.

A hit and two Cameron errors in the sixth could have produced runs but a runner got a bad break on a ball that rolled away from the catcher and was thrown out. Still with runners at first and second, no timely hit was forthcoming.

Cameron’s two runs were earned. Meuth threw only 58 pitches in tossing a complete game. He recorded three strike outs and one walk.
