One bad inning cost the Manchester baseball team Monday, falling to Oak Hill 9-4.
The Golden Eagle offense jumped on starting pitcher Evan Milam in the first inning, collecting 6 hits and scoring 7 runs to take a commanding lead.
Milam would settle down and hold Oak Hill to just one more hit and run the remainder of the game as the Squires tried to play catch up.
Manchester scored 2 runs in the third and 1 in the sixth and 1 in the 7th.
Jim Sainsbury led the offense with 2 hits and 2 rbi’s. Grant Schuler had 1 hit and 1 rbi. Jurgin Cripe and Jake Semler each had a hit.
Coach Rupley ” After the first inning we played pretty good baseball. Evan Milam gave up 7 hits, 6 in the first inning. If we eliminate the bad inning, we can be a pretty good team.”
Manchester host Eastbrook Tuesday.
