Skipper's falls in Swampland play
From Staff Reports
Skipper’s Sporting Goods (Morgan City) fell for the second consecutive day at home as Jester’s Court (Central Lafourche) won Tuesday’s contest, 10-2.
Starter Ryan Veillion suffered the loss as he surrendered two earned runs on two hits and walked three in two innings of work. He also struck out two. In relief, Josh Glatter surrendered seven earned runs on six hits with three walks in two innings of work, while Craig Mayon surrendered an earned run on four hits and struck out three in three innings of work. Mayon also issued a walk.
“We didn’t pitch it well,” Skipper’s coach Marc Gonzales said. “We got behind in the count and had to throw fastballs in the middle of the plate. Hitters like those situations, especially their team. They don’t miss many fastballs. We also need to be better on the bases. We’ve run ourselves out of potential big innings in the last several games. We need to get that corrected. All we’re doing is giving momentum right back to the other team.”
At the plate Chandler Delaune led Skipper’s with a 2-for-3 performance with a triple, while Grant Perry added a 1-for-3 outing with a triple and an RBI. Other hitters included Veillion, 1-for-2 with an RBI; and Brennan Ashley, 1-for- with, a double.
Skipper’s will return to action Thursday when it travels to face Patterson. Junior varsity will begin at 5 p.m. followed by varsity action at 7 p.m.
