Lions crush Crane, 13-1


The Mansfield Lions baseball team ended a two game skid in their schedule last week when they hosted Crane and crushed the Pirates, 13-1.

Mansfield jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back.

In that big bottom half of the first inning, the Lions scored six runs with two outs as they took advantage of Crane errors, walks and hit by pitches.

Offensively, Brayden Barnett led the Lions with two hits and three RBIs; Carter Brooke had one RBI and two runs scored; Kellar Davis had one RBI and one run scored; both Jack Grubbs and Dylan Robertson scored twice; while one run was scored by Madix Gray, Blake Henry and Brock Gray.

On the mound, Barnett had three innings of shutout ball and allowed one hit while striking out six.

Brooke tossed two innings and allowed one earned run on two hits with two strikeouts.

One day later, the Lions once again ran into a tough Seymour Tigers team and lost, 9-2.

Mansfield trailed by just one through four innings before the Tigers would score six runs in their final three at-bats.

Meanwhile, the Lions’ offense had just one hit against for teammate Chade Noble.

Noble had six innings of shutout ball and allowed one hit while striking out eight. He did walk six batters.

Madix Gray had the Lion’s lone RBI. Ryin Long had the team’s lone hit while both Trevor Williams and Brooke scored one run.

On the mound, Davis went four and two-thirds of an inning and allowed six earned runs on nine hits with one strikeout and two walks.

Robertson tossed two and a third innings of shutout ball and allowed one hit with two strikeouts.

For the final week of fall season, the Lions will play in the Summit Conference Tournament.
