Middle School Cougars fall to Oneida

-A A +A

  On a beautiful Saturday, March 19, the CCMS baseball team faced off against the Oneida Indians. 

Tate McGhee made his second start of the young season and pitched brilliantly, going the complete game, 4 innings, 57 pitches (16 balls and 41 strikes). He walked none and gave up just 5 hits, 1 earned run, and fanned 4. 

Unfortunately, the great defense from the first two games didn’t materialize as CCMS made 5 errors and fielded only .750. 

To add further insult, Oneida’s starting pitcher, a southpaw, needed just 78 pitches (32 balls/ 41 strikes) to go the distance in a no-hit, shut out performance while walking 5 and striking out 8. 

Oneida took the game 4-0. 

Campbell County’s JV team didn’t fare any better, losing 10-1. The JV hit .111 (Seth Tackett’s double and Eli Seals’s single the only 2 hits) and fielded just .563 with 7 errors. 

The CCMS-JV used 3 pitchers over 4 innings, but Oneida’s JV reached the max run limit for an inning in 3 of the 4 innings before Campbell County could get 3 outs.
