Barnum baseball struggles in opener


Dan Lingle

The Barnum Bombers baseball team finally got on the field April 24 against the South Ridge Panthers. The game was a slow start, with Barnum struggling to make contact with the ball. Max Salzer would be a shining light as his first two at-bats resulted in a pair of doubles into center field. Tyler Nynas started strong on the mound but soon the Panthers would time his speed and started driving the ball against the Bombers. The wet field would all but stop the ball in its tracks causing the fielders to not know exactly where to meet the ball.

After a top of the inning with no Bomber runs, the Panthers broke the slow beginning and rallied to drive in three runs. The second and third innings would find the Bombers continuing to struggle to get their bats on the balls as they would fail to score again. On the other hand, the Panthers hammered the ball and scored four more runs in both the second and third innings. Finally in the fourth inning, Bomber bats made contact with the ball, and put four runs on the score board. However, the Panthers would show no mercy and drove in eight of their own runs in the fourth. The Bombers would fail to score in the fifth inning ending their chance of catching the Panthers as the game ended with the a Panthers 19-4 victory.
