Eagles Fall to Cameron 8-5

by Mike Organ

Lexington lost a lightning delayed game in Cameron, 8- 5 Monday night. The loss put the Eagles’ chances of a spot in the post season in jeopardy.

Lexington scored first in the top of the initial inning. Sam Perry singled, stole second, moved to third on Tanner Meuth’s ground out to second. Perry scored when the Cameron third baseman booted a ball hit by Nathanael Clifford.

Cameron answered in their half of the first with a lot of help from Lexington pitchers. The Yoe worked Lexington for four walks and a single. The Eagles wasted a fielding gem by Meuth. Meuth caught a ground ball at third, stepped on third and threw to first for a double play. The Yoe still managed to get two runs.

The Yoe continued in the second inning by getting two more runs. A single, a Lexington throwing error, and a two RBI single put the Yoe up 4-1. Finally in the third inning, the Eagles retired the Yoe 1-2-3. But the Yoe struck for four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Two Eagle errors, two walks, and two singles accounted for the runs.

Lexington was back at it in the seventh. Perry led off with a single, his fourth hit of the night. Meuth followed with a single, and Clifford was hit by a pitch, to load the bases. A balk was called on the Yoe pitcher, allowing Perry home with the Eagles’ fifth run. A short fly ball to right field, and a ground out ended the Eagle surge.
