Reds can’t catch EvansvilleJune 13, 2014
From Herald Staff Reports
For the Jasper Reds, timing was the crucial factor that separated a win from a loss Thursday evening.
The Reds notched six hits for the game. The visiting Evansville Wolfepack matched them with a half-dozen hits. But as Jasper’s offense was scattered and the Reds didn’t get on the board until the ninth inning, the Wolfepack bunched three hits with a sacrifice to score twice in the fourth inning and take control in a 3-1 victory at the Jasper High School Sports Complex.
Mitch Hunnicutt swatted a double for Jasper’s only extra-base hit and also worked six innings on the mound as he shouldered the first loss of his Reds career. Hunnicutt, a Seymour High School and Hanover College product, was 3-0 last summer and 1-0 in 2012.
Jasper (3-3) staged a charge in the ninth inning and sent the winning run to the plate. But with Reds runners at second and third, a strikeout ended the contest.
The Reds will hit the road Saturday at Paducah, Ky., facing the Western Kentucky Hardball in a doubleheader starting at 3 p.m. EDT.
