Charger BB Loses to CAM, 16-1
The ACGC baseball team stepped outside of conference play last night to face CAM on the Cougars home field and left Anita with a 16-1 loss. The defeat leaves the Chargers without a win in six tries.
CAM jumped on ACGC early, scoring eleven runs in its first at bat. The hosts added two runs in the third frame and three more in the fourth to end the game under the fifteen run mercy rule.
The Chargers' lone score came in its fourth at bat when Ben Kingery walked and eventually scored on a fielders choice. Kingery also had the only Charger hit when he singled in the first inning.
Eli Kading took the loss on the mound. The freshman gave up eleven runs on six hits while walking eight Cougar batters. Kingery relieved in the second inning with runner on first and no outs. The senior went two innings, and gave up two runs in the third inning. He walked five Cougar batters and gave up just an infield single. Hayden Knutter finished the game, as he pitched the final inning, surrendering three runs on two hits while walking two batters.
The Chargers return home on Monday, June 2 when it will host the Panorama Panthers in a JV/Varsity doubleheader, with the JV contest to begin at 5 PM.
