Post 114 loses two on the road against Paragould, 11-1 and 10-0
PARAGOULD, Ark. -- The Sikeston Post 114 Senior Legion baseball team lost two games of a doubleheader Sunday to Paragould Ark., 11-1 and 10-0.
Both games were shortened because of the 10-run mercy rule.
Louis Matos took the loss for Sikeston while Patrick Smith was the losing pitcher in the second game after 2 1/3 innings on the hill.
Sikeston, who will host Jackson Legion today at 6 p.m. at the VFW Memorial Stadium, gained the early advantage in the top of the first inning.
After back to back singles by Cord Sheehy and Austin Hatchel, Jayshawn McDaniel knocked Sheehy in with an RBI double to score Sikeston's only run of the day.
Nathan Maynard also added a single to round out Sikeston's five total hits during the 11-1 loss.
"We had three hits in the first inning and then we went silent," Sikeston head coach Alan Scheeter said. "That's been the story of our year in seems like. We can't put a full game together."
Sikeston was limited to one hit in the second game, which was attained by Maynard.
