Game 2. Ellsworth. 13. MC. 2
In game 2 we managed 4 hits. 2 by Huffman, 1 each for Kal O’Brien and Nolan Lalonde. Kal O’Brien got his first career start for the Comets striking out 9 over his 5 innings of work. Robert Martin came in to close out the final inning allowing 3 runs on 4 hits.
Ellsworth has some quality pitching, and their bats were definitely alive yesterday. They are extremely well coached and fundamentally strong. Tonight was a night we could not afford mistakes and unfortunately that is exactly what happened. We made 13 errors and walked 10 guys over our 11 innings tonight. We can’t ever afford to do that and a good team is going to do exactly what Ellsworth did and capitalize on those mistakes. Our young guys got some valuable playing time tonight and we will be better moving forward.
MC now moves to 8-4, 6-4 in conference and will face off with Inland Lakes on Monday.
