Seymour's annual spring Summit Conference contest against Mansfield last week was a pitcher's duel as the Tigers fell 3-0 on Monday, April 8, in road action in a game that saw only six hits and three runs in seven innings.

The loss dropped the Tiger record to 7-4 overall and 1-3 in the league.

It also spoiled a solid pitching effort by senior Brady Brooke, who went six innings, allowing three runs on five hits. He struck out eight and walked only one.

"We played hard," Tiger head coach Jason Duey said. "We had a few baserunners and some scoring opportunities. But we just couldn't push runs across the plate.

"You can't win if you don't score."

Seymour had only one hit in the game from junior Carson Sturdefant. The Tigers also drew four walks and reached base three times on errors.

Mansfield scored one run in the first inning and two more in the sixth.

The loss eliminated Seymour's hopes of repeating as Summit Conference champions as it was the team's third league defeat.
