Bobcat baseball falls to Pocahontas in season opener
The Corning Bobcat baseball team hit off their season on the road Friday, March 1 at Pocahontas. This team has lost a lot of bats and some key pitching from last season’s great run, but Coach Kyle George has proven to keep a consistently good product on the field in his tenure. Corning opened up the first inning with some lively bats punching in three runs in the opening inning of the season. Beau Young was given the task of starting pitcher in this contest and in the first inning looked solid, and so did the Bobcat defense. Corning held Piggott hitless and after one inning with a score of 3 to 0 in favor of the road Cats. That first inning was the only inning the Redskins wouldn’t score the rest of the game on their way to a 15 to 5 victory. The Redskins didn’t do anything special to defeat Corning in this game. Pocahontas did swipe six bags, but the majority of the damage was from friendly fire for Corning. The Cats stubbed their toes walking nine different batters and committing seven errors.
