NEWBURGH — The Floyds Knobs Post 42 baseball team dropped a pair to Newburgh at Castle in doubleheader action on Saturday. Post 42 lost the first game, 7-6, before falling in the nightcap, 5-1.
“It’s really simple. We had too many free passes from the pitchers,” Floyds Knobs coach Ricky Romans said. “We walked nine guys on the day, hit three batters. Too many errors in the field. We didn’t get timely hits when we had opportunities.”
Floyds Knobs had enough offense to win the matinee, but committed four errors and gave away too many bases.
Jordan Yale scored two runs in a 2-for-3 performance for Floyds Knobs, while Drew Kissel drove in three runs in a 3-for-4 day.
Kyle Sipes took the loss in Game 1, surrendering four earned runs in 2 2/3 innings of relief work.
In the second game, Floyds Knobs couldn’t generate any offense. It had just four hits on the day.
Kyle Craig went the distance in taking the loss for Post 42. He allowed five earned runs, struck out one and walked three.
Floyds Knobs (7-6) travels to Rockport on Tuesday.
