On Wednesday night, the Dekalb Barons hosted the Snider Panthers in varsity baseball action.
The Barons fell into an 3-0 hole early, thanks to a couple of Dekalb errors, and some nice at bats by Snider. After the Panthers tacked on 3 more runs in the third to make the score 6-0, it was an uphill battle the rest of the way that the Barons just could not overcome.
The lone bright spot for Dekalb was the work out of the bullpen by Baron senior Jacob Dickey. Dickey came on to pitch at the beginning of the 4th inning, and he proceeded to retire 12 of the 13 hitters that he faced, and most importantly, kept his team in the game by not giving up any more runs.
Unfortunately for Dekalb, they could not get the bats going in any kind of sustained rally, and they lost 6-1. The loss dropped the Barons record to 7-3 as they will next host Blackford this Saturday in a doubleheader that will start at 11:00 am.
