East baseball

falls to Trail

NEW MADISON — Miami East couldn’t finish off a seventh-inning rally Tuesday at Tri-Village, leaving the bases loaded in its final at-bat in a 7-5 Cross County Conference loss.

Brandon Wilson got the loss in relief as the Patriots scored two in the fourth and three in the fifth to take a 6-5 lead, adding an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth. The Vikings (0-4, 0-1 CCC) loaded the bases with none out in the seventh, but a one-two-three double play back to the pitcher helped Tri-Village escape unscathed.

Braxton Donaldson was 2-for-4 in the game offensively and Cam Coomes was 1 for-1 with two walks.

Lady Indians

handle Trail

PLEASANT HILL — Kylee Fisher hit an RBI single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh Tuesday afternoon, giving the Newton Indians their first victory of the season, 8-7 over visiting National Trail in Cross County Conference play.

Newton had taken a two-run lead into the top of the seventh thanks to an RBI double by Madison Mollette in the bottom of the sixth, but the Blazers fought back to force the Indians to hit in the bottom of the inning. Fisher finished the game in walk-off fashion, however, and Newton improved to 1-4 on the year. Kristen Rappold went the distance and got the win on the mound.
