A costly error stopped A-D-M baseball from claiming a season series sweep over Carroll with a 3-2 defeat Tuesday night in Adel.
A-D-M actually held an advantage through the first four innings with a 2-1 lead. Where the game took a turn for the worse for A-D-M came in the fifth inning where an uncharacteristic error by Logan Crannell at first base aidid in two unearned runs for Carroll. That officially brought the game in favor of the visiting Tigers who would go on to win by the 3-2 final.
The hometown Tigers scattered three hits over the last six innings but couldn’t muster much of a comeback despite putting the bat on the ball quite solidly.
“We’re just not catching much of a break at the plate right now,” said A-D-M head coach Jason Book. “I’m pleased with how much we are puttting bat on the ball and getting solid hits. The problem right now is that most of our hits are right at the defense.”
The Tigers drop their overall record to 7-14 while droping to 1-10 inside the Raccoon River Conference. Their next match up will be a road trip to Indianola for a nonconference battle with Class 4A’s fourth ranked Indians on Thursday, June 28.
