Baseball: LFO falls to Sonaraville, 5-3

  • ()

The Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe baseball team lost its second consecutive game on Friday against visiting Sonaraville, 5-3.

The Warriors, who were shutout 10-0 on Tuesday, put together a three run-rally in their final atbat against Sonoraville, but it wasn't enough to get the win.

LFO head coach Johnny Burch said he was proud of their fight, and would continue working towards playing "a complete game." 

"So far that's been our story," he said. "We've kind of got a good effort an inning or two in every ball game. We haven't put many games together."

LFO scored its first run on a sacrifice fly hit by Sam Eaves. Trey Silmon cut the lead to 5-3 on a two-run homer. He also had a single earlier in the game.

Burch said it was unfortunate their efforts were "a little too late in the game."

"We've been trying to get over a hump, and we haven't been able to get over it consistently," he said. "We're going to keep working on it and figure it out."

Burch said Melford did an exceptionally good job on the mound, allowing only fourth hits until exiting the game in the sixth inning.

Cole Ellis also led the Warriors on offense with a double.
