The CYL 10's dropped their opening contest at the Cal Ripken World Series in Vincennes Saturday evening 20-4 to South Brunswick.
South Brunswick opened the scoring with single runs in the second and third innings against Clay County hurler TJ Decker.
However, the CYL squad responded with a big inning as Ty Bryan opened the bottom half of the third inning with a walk for Clay County.
Jordan Girton followed with a single and Zach Hull was hit by a pitch. Coleman Craig then ripped an two run single to get the CYL on the board and knot the score at two-apiece.
Bryant Pestoff then put Clay County on top with another two-run double that scored Hull and Craig to put the CYL ahead at 4-2.
The Middle Atlantic champs responded in kind however, piling up a five run fourth inning to go on top to stay at 7-4. South Brunswick would go on top cap the game with a 13 run outburst in the sixth inning to provide the final margin.
For the CYL, Hull had a pair of singles and Bryan, Pestoff, Craig and Girton each had hits.
With the loss, the CYL was slated to face Little Rock, AK in a Monday night contest.
