The Prairie Home Panthers baseball team just can’t seem to buy a run on the road.
Thursday night in a non-conference game against the Fayette Falcons, the Panthers managed just six hits in six innings in a 10-0 loss.
While the loss dropped Prairie Home to 2-11 on the season, head coach Dalton Armontrout said the Panthers left quite a few on base against Fayette.
“I was happy to see our bottom half of the lineup get on base, but our top half of the order didn’t produce like I hoped,” Armontrout said. “Defensively, we just didn’t make plays for our pitcher. We didn’t communicate very well and they took extra bases because of that. Just wasn’t a very good game, especially being our last game before districts. Look forward to practice and getting back on the field in district play next Friday versus St. Elizabeth at St. Elizabeth.”
Ben Stock took the loss on the mound for Prairie Home and struck out four batters in four innings. He also gave up seven runs on seven hits and two walks. Wyatt Borghardt then came in and pitched two innings in relief and allowed three runs on one walk.
As for the hitting in the game for Prairie Home, Creed Flood, Ben Stock, Ross Kendrick, Gabe Fenton, Billy Kellum and Austin Small each had one single.
