The Washington Demons took their first two loses of the season last night against Mt. Pleasant.
The game started with a pair of walks for Jake Dickinson that led to the first run of the game for the Panthers, but the Demons responded in their half of the inning with a hit from Walker Breard and an RBI by Elijah Wood, making the score 1-1, and the only run Washington scored all game.
The Panthers put up two more runs in the second to make it 3-1, after a walk, and RBI double and an error. Mt. Pleasant scored two more runs in the fifth to make the final of 5-1. Washington was sent down in short order three times, and struck out 10 times in the game, five of them were looking strike three’s.
Breard went 2-3 with a run and a double, Breard was the only multi-hit player in a game that the Demons only had four. His double happened in the sixth inning, and may have set up the best chance for the Demons to score, but two looking strikeouts and a soft grounder to the pitcher ended that score threat quickly.
Washington couldn’t find anymore offense in the second game either, losing it 7-1.
The Demons fall for the first and second time of the season and fall to 5-2 overall and 2-2 in the conference. They play again on Tuesday at Mid-Prairie.
