Bartow baseball teams finish 0-3 on Opening Day

Posted

The Adairsville baseball team dropped its season opener to Trion by a 6-4 final score Wednesday at LakePoint.

While the Tigers jumped out early with two runs in the first inning, the Bulldogs responded with a four-run second.

To its credit, Adairsville came right back to tie the game in its next at bat only to see Trion go ahead for good with two runs in the fifth.

The Tigers held a 7-4 lead in the hit column. Kyler Smith and Logan Hunt each finished with two hits and a walk.

Lassiter 2, Cartersville 0

Despite giving up just a pair of first-inning runs, Cartersville baseball couldn't put together a comeback in a 2-0 road loss Wednesday at Lassiter.

Playing in their season opener, the Canes ended up with a 5-4 edge in hits but also finished with more errors (3-1).

Hank Smith led the Cartersville offense with two hits. Micah Earwood went five strong innings, striking out nine.

Kell 19, Cass 5

Cass baseball scored three runs in the bottom of the first and two in the bottom of the seventh in its opener against Kell Wednesday at the East Cobb Baseball Complex in Marietta.

Unfortunately for the Colonels, the Longhorns nearly racked up 20 runs in between to earn a 19-5 victory.

Carson Hill's RBI single opened the scoring ahead of Matt Ballas' two-run double. Ballas led Cass, winding up 3-for-3 with two doubles.

Playing as the visitors despite being across the street from its own campus, Kell answered with four runs, including a key three-run triple with two outs, in the second inning. The Longhorns increased their lead to 9-3 in the fourth, thanks in part to another bases-clearing triple with two outs.

Kell, a former Region 7-AAAAA rival of Cass, tacked on two more runs in the fifth and one in the sixth for a comfortable 12-3 advantage. But the Longhorns weren't satisfied, as they pushed across seven runs in the seventh inning.

Cass managed to get two of those runs back on a Matt Shook double in the home half of the frame.
