Selects vs. Predators
Thursday, May 18, 2017
The Selects defense failed to show up Thursday night, as they dropped their second straight to open the season, 11-3 to the Predators.
The boys in green once again struck first, as leadoff hitter Mike Brown worked a walk and came around to count on a Darren Strickland single. But things fell apart quickly from there. A couple errors, some poor routes in the outfield, and a combined 7 for 8 night from Predators' hitters Dallas Kipfer and Chris Young were more than enough to lay a thumping on the Selects on this night.
In front of the aforementioned abysmal defense, Scott Clark notched six strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings, taking the loss, with Ethan Cox performing mop-up duty for the final 1 1/3.
MVP: Mike Brown, LF
