The Glenbrook Apaches had a night they would like to forget Tuesday, as Riverfield Academy drove over from Rayville to deliver an 11-0 loss before heading back east.
In a game where the strike zone appeared to be the size of a dixie cup, the Apaches walked nine Raiders. When Glenbrook was able to throw one over the heart of the plate, Riverfield was ready, racking up hit after hit on their way to the win.
“We had a really bad fourth inning,” Apache head coach Jonathan Hardy said, “That’s the more walks than we’ve probably had all season combined. At times we were able to locate and weren’t getting it (the call). Other than that we have to swing the bats a lot better. We struck out way too many times. We have to find ways to get on base.”
Caleb Wilson went 1-1 and Clay Simonton went 1-2 as the Apaches could only muster two hits against Raider pitching.
Glenbrook will try and get revenge for the home blowout as they travel to Rayville for a double-header with Riverfield Friday.
First pitch for game one of the doubleheader is at 4:30 p.m. at Riverfield Academy.
