Lions drop Blue Chip opener to Warriors

LOOGOOTEE — LOOGOOTEE — As the old adage goes, “momentum is the next day’s starting pitcher.” After two lopsided wins over the weekend, the Loogootee baseball team learned that two easy wins on Saturday didn’t guarantee anything in week two of the regular season.

The Lions (2-2) lost their Blue Chip Conference opener 12-6 against North Knox Tuesday night behind four RBIs from Shanson Lamb after seemingly everything went wrong in the first two innings.

Before many of the Lions fans were comfortably in their seats, starting pitcher Casey Miller was in a hole. North Knox’s Hunter Jones reached on a walk and Jordan Meurer singled to reach base and Shanson Lamb homered over the left field fence to give the Warriors a quick 3-0 before an out was recorded. Miller threw 30 pitches in the first, with an even amount of strikes and balls.

In the second inning, North Knox scored three more runs on an error by catcher Hayden Bell, a Miller walk to his counterpart, Christopher Graman and Luke McKinnon scored the sixth run of the night after Bell allowed a passed ball and the Warriors’ second basemen slid in safely under the tag of Miller. Miller threw 57 pitches in those first two innings and was not long for the game. He completed three innings before being pulled by coach Luke Woolems after allowing eight runs on five hits on 74 pitches. Miller walked four, hit two batters and struck out two.

“He was having trouble locating,” Woolems said. “The (strike) zone was a little tight early and we had a hard time adjusting. The walk, hit, home run to start the game rattled us a little bit. These guys haven’t thrown a lot of innings yet, this was only Casey’s second outing — it was over a week ago that he was out there for the first time. We’re not sure what we have yet and we’re still trying to figure it out.”
