Selects Struggle in Blowout Loss

Selects vs. Predators

Thursday, May 18, 2017

The Selects defense failed to show up Thursday night, as they dropped their second straight to open the season, 11-3 to the Predators.

The boys in green once again struck first, as leadoff hitter Mike Brown worked a walk and came around to count on a Darren Strickland single. But things fell apart quickly from there. A couple errors, some poor routes in the outfield, and a combined 7 for 8 night from Predators' hitters Dallas Kipfer and Chris Young were more than enough to lay a thumping on the Selects on this night.

In front of the aforementioned abysmal defense, Scott Clark notched six strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings, taking the loss, with Ethan Cox performing mop-up duty for the final 1 1/3.

MVP: Mike Brown, LF
