On Tuesday, the Buckeyes held Spring Hill close for four innings before the flood gates opened and the Panthers captured a 12-0 win in six innings.
In that game, Jordan Traylor was pitching and got the loss. However, he was pulled after the fourth due to a high pitch count. Gilmer was trailing 3-0 at the time.
Spring Hill added four runs in the fifth and five in the sixth to end the game early.
At Henderson, two runs by Watson Argez and one by Dalton Woode spelled the difference.
Argez doubled in the first and scored on a Jeff Holt single.
In the third inning, Argez came home on Tre Jones double.
Woode singled in the fourth and come home on Conner Dotson’s double.
Despite the loss, Coach Lonnie Henry complemented Traylor on his pitching. Henry pointed out that Traylor had 64 strikes out of the 78 pitches he threw Saturday. Unfortuately, some of those strikes went for hits.
The final district game starts Friday at Matt Camp Field at 6 p.m. with the seniors being recognized in pregame activities.
