Maroons two for three in recent ballgames

CLINTON — The Maroons have been up and they’ve been down, and the season continues to roll on.  But, there have been some good recent outings for the team.

Clinton traveled to Warrensburg-Latham to take on the Cardinals and managed to hold them scoreless for this game.  Clinton scored a run in each of the first and second innings. 

Then, there seemed to be a stalemate for three innings until the Maroons broke through with a run in the sixth inning and 2 more scores in the seventh inning for a 5-0 win on the road. 

Jacob Sterr went 2-3 at the plate with an RBI and Wes Harrold hit a triple.  Mason Walker (1-1) got the win for the Maroons.

Next on the schedule for the Maroons was another trip down Route 51 to Central A&M in a match with the Raiders.  This was a slow-moving game with the first score a run by the opposition in the second inning. 

The next score came in the fifth inning when the Maroons got on the board with one run.  The Maroons then added 3 more runs in the 6th inning to take the lead. 

There was a scare in the 7th inning when the Raiders added one more run, but they could muster no more.  Clinton won 4-2. 

Mason Walker (2-1) got the win for the Maroons.  Brooks Cluver went 2-2 at the plate and Dominick Thayer hit a double and had 4 RBIs.

Then, the Maroons returned home over the weekend to take on the Meridian Hawks.  The windy day seemed Hawks as they struck early and often. 

The barrage started in the second inning with one run.  The Hawks then kept adding one run per inning until the sixth when they plated 2 runs.  That was all they would need as they held the Maroons scoreless for 7 innings. 

Dominick Thayer (1-2) took the loss for the Maroons and Mason Walker went 2-3 at the plate. 

The Maroons are now 4-5 overall and 4-4 in conference play.
