Coming off a big win Wednesday night against Lakewood, the Hobbton Wildcat baseball team lost one to Rosewood Thursday night. The final was 5-2.
The Wildcats and the Eagles tied the game in the first inning. In the fourth, Rosewood had a 4-2 lead with Hunter Britt on the mound. Jackson McLamb came into the game midway the 3rd in relief. He only allowed 1 hit after taking over.
The coach of the Wildcats liked his team’s effort, but admitted that not enough intensity out of the gate led to his team getting behind early, and eventually the loss.
“Tonight was a hard game,” said Hobbton head coach Chris Carroll. “We came out a little sluggish and they got the best of us. We battled back. We fought hard; but, at the end it just wasn’t our night. We’re going to battle back and be ready for next week. We’ve had a good week at practice. We have a challenge ahead of us but we are going to step up. Jackson McLamb came in and did a good job finishing off the game,” finished Carroll.
Hobbton is now 9-5 on the season, and 3-5 in conference play in the Carolina 1A Conference. They are set to get back in action on Tuesday when they are scheduled to head up to Silver Springs and take on the Spring Creek Gators.
The game is set to start around 7 p.m.
