The Southwood baseball team continued its woes Friday, falling to Mississinewa 12-2.
Mississinewa plated a run in the top of the second to give the Indians a 1-0 lead. Freshman Jacob Lloyd singled in the bottom of the inning and advanced on a balk, but the Knights come up empty handed.
In the third things got a little shaky on the mound for starting pitcher Tim Duell. The Indians drew four walks and scored three runs on two passed balls and a hit batsman to lead 4-0.
Mississinewa would score one more run in the fifth and three in the sixth to lead 8-0 before the Knights made a little noise. Lloyd doubled for his third hit of the game and Duell followed him with a line drive home run over the left field fence to make it 8-2. Some key base running mistakes cut the Knight rally short.
The Indians would tack on four more runs in the top of the seventh and hold the Knights for the 12-2 final.
Jacob Lloyd led the Knights with three hits. Robbie Cole added two. Duell, Colin Elliott and Kyle Weaver each had a hit.
Duell took the loss on the mound.
