An extra baseball season is truly a treat for the smaller schools that take it on in response to a lack of football during fall. The Summit Conference battle between the Bears and the Eagles on Tuesday, Sept. 5 drives this point home.
The Bears are 4-2 on the season, led by solid pitching and discipline at the plate and in the field.
The Eagles are 2-4.
The Eagles fell to the Bears 5-1 on Tuesday, Sept. 5 at Fordland.
“We had good pitching in both and continued to really take good at-bats,” said head coach Clay Bilyeu. “We left too many runners on in our game against Fordland but were able to come away with a win.”
Conway hosted the Seymour Tigers on Thursday, Sept. 5. . After dropping 15 points to the Tiger’s 3, the Bears left week three 4-2 after just five innings.
“We scored on the majority of our opportunities,” continued Bilyeu. “We were able to get some production throughout our entire lineup and it led to a lot of runs.”
After their loss on Tuesday, the Eagles turned it around to take home a 5-1 win against Marion E. Early at home.
The Eagles traveled to Crane to play Billings in the first round at the Crane Wood Bat Tournament on Tuesday, Sept. 12. Check next week’s edition of The Marshfield Mail to see how they do.
