Taking on Walnut Grove for the second time this season, the Redhawks came up short yet again losing 4-1 to the Wildcats. The team hopes to turn it around Monday when they take on Independence in a rescheduled game due to predicted weather conditions.

Baseball fell into a three game losing streak after a 4-1 loss against Walnut Grove Friday bumping the boys down to fourth place in District 10-5A.

“We played good defense,” junior Ben Pierce said. “But we could improve starting off the game strong instead of trying to come back a lot.”

Originally scheduled to play Independence on Tuesday, due to the weather forecast and the strong possibility of rain, the game was rescheduled to Monday at 5:00 p.m. at  The Nest.

“We’ve got to do a better job of capitalizing on some of [the opponents] mistakes, which we haven’t done,” head coach Scott McGarrh said. “We got to come up with some key hits. We’re trying to beat the weather cause we want to get them on our field. We’re the better team, we just to play like the better team.”

The new game day and time gives the Redhawks little time to prepare, but McGarrh has a game plan to adjust.

“It affects preparation big time,” McGarrh said. “So we don’t have the extra time to set the [pitching] machines up and say, hey, this is what you’re gonna see, this is the breaking ball you’re gonna see, this the fastball you’re seeing, so we actually set it up. It’s set up now, for the kids who have late arrival, the kids who have third period off [it is their job] to come up there [and practice].”
