Clay City baseball falls to Sullivan Golden Arrows

Wednesday, April 9, 2003

The Clay City Eels hung tight with the Sullivan Golden Arrows for the first four innings before fading in the late innings for a 13-5 loss on Tuesday evening.

"We were in a position in the fourth inning, a 2-2 game, and we had the opportunity to take the lead," said Clay City coach Michael Owens. "Through those first four innings I think we did a lot of good things. We had some guys hitting really well and our defense was playing solid."

Unfortunately for the Eels, the Golden Arrows came on strong late with a seven run seventh inning to take the victory.

Brock Dyer got the start for Clay City and went four and one-third innings, giving up seven hits and four earned runs while striking out two and walking a pair. He would pick up the loss for the Eels.

"I thought that Brock (Dyer) pitched a good game," said Owens. "He got the loss but I thought he pitched well."

Brandon Wells received the brunt of the Sullivan attack in the final innings, allowing six earned runs in just two-thirds of an inning while hitting three batters and walking a pair despite giving up just one hit.

For the Eels, Cody Gerber had a pair of doubles at the plate. Greg Long had two hits and scored a pair of runs while driving a run in as well. Dyer also had two hits in the attack.

The Eels will look to even their record on Thursday when they travel to Eastern for a 4:30 p.m. game.
