CLAY CITY -- A sloppy Clay City baseball team lost in ugly fashion Tuesday night, taking a 10-2 loss against Bloomfield.
After taking a 2-0 lead early, the Eels came apart in the fourth inning, allowing six runs in the frame, all of which were unearned.
Errors and passed balls did Clay City in, as the 10 runs (nine unearned) they allowed came on just three hits. Coach Vance Edmondson was visibly frustrated following the game and said his club's performance wasn't acceptable.
"Anytime you give up 10 runs on three hits you aren't going to win," Edmondson said. "We have to become tougher mentally, and tonight we paid the price."
The loss drops Clay City to 6-4. Edmondson said he knew their performance Tuesday was not indicative of their talent, and stressed his belief they would rebound quickly.
"We've got to come back and work hard everyday to make sure we're getting better," Edmondson said. "But this is all stuff we can fix, and thankfully in baseball you don't have to wait long to bounce back."
Clay City returns to action Thursday with a road game against Rockville.
