Corry’s junior varsity baseball, who will play for the county tourney title, lost to visiting Warren on Wednesday, 12-8.
Untimely defensive lapses enabled the Dragons to score three runs in the first inning and five runs in the sixth inning. It was a deficit that the Corry offense, while hitting the ball hard all night, was just not able to overcome, according to coach Mike Lesher.
The Corry offense was led by Caleb Marrs, Nate Lesher, Nick Brundage and Laban Ehrhart, who each managed to have a multi-hit game. Marrs had two doubles. Ehrhart and Brundage combined for a double apiece. Both Ehrhart and Lesher had home runs in the game, with Lesher launching one to right field that went through the Warren Dragons’ bus window, and Ehrhart crushing one to left field.
The Beavers defense struggled, committing six errors that helped set the table for Warren. Corry’s pitching struggled without the defensive help, giving up 12 hits and five walks.
The loss dropped the Beavers’ record to 5-6, with an upcoming game today at Northwestern at 4 p.m. before the varsity game.
Corry then plays in the championship game of the JV Underclassmen Tournament at General McLane on Saturday at 1 p.m.
