Cameronís Mikey Richardson hit an RBI single in the
bottom of the seventh inning to give the Dragons a walk off 2-1 win
over Chillicothe on Saturday. The game was originally scheduled
April 11th at Cameron but was rained out. With the season coming to
a quick end, and the Hornet Baseball Classic being cancelled, both
schools agreed to play the game at Shaffer Park in Chillicothe, but
still considered Cameron the Home team in the contest.
Chillicothe scored in the top of the 4th inning but
their 1-0 lead would be short lived. Cameron answered with a run in
the bottom of the 4th. The defensive game stayed tied at 1 until the
bottom of the 7th.
Troy Toedebusch had a strong outing at the plate for
Chillicothe, going with distance. He struck out 12 of the 25 batters
he faced. At the plate, Chillicothe picked up 6 hits but couldnít
turn them into runs. Ryan Smith had two hits, Tyler Long, Steven
Cooper, Bobby Penniston and Derek Hussey all had one hit each.
Weather permitting; it will be a busy week for
Chillicothe with home games Monday and Thursday and road games
Tuesday and Wednesday.
