Oblong baseball team shut out for second straight day in loss to Noble
| In order to win a baseball game, a team must score at least one run.|
Oblong High School's baseball team is having difficulty with that, as they were shut out for the second straight day Tuesday.
The Panthers dropped their fifth game in as many tries this season, losing 6-0 at Noble-Clay City in non-conference action.
"This was another tough loss," OHS head coach Dave Hasty said. "We cut down on strikeouts, but we weren't able to string together hits when we needed them."
The game was scoreless until the bottom of the third, when Noble-Clay City pushed across a run for a 1-0 lead. The Wildcats added two runs in the fourth and three more in the sixth to pull away for the win.
Oblong did manage to outhit Noble-Clay City 7-6, but could not bunch the hits together to produce any runs.
Kyler Fear led the OHS offense with two singles, while Collin Meese, Tyler Woods, Jason Midgett, Koert Mehler and Logan Goodwin had a base hit apiece.
Wes Jones took the loss on the mound, giving up three runs on five hits and six walks in three and one-third innings. Woods walked one and struck out two in one and two-thirds scoreless innings of relief, Mehler gave up three runs on one hit and four walks while striking out two in two-thirds of an inning and Goodwin struck out the only batter he faced.
