With only four total hits on the day, the Bobcats struggled to put runs on the board, while allowing 12 or more runs for the fourth time this season.

Bobcat junior J.M. Baker pitched three innings, allowing six hits, six runs (none earned) three walks and three strikeouts. Senior Antonio Zachary pitched the final two innings allowing seven hits, six runs, no walks and one strikeout.

The Bobcats struggled on offense, totaling only four hits on the afternoon — one each by Zachary, Hunter Clark, Ethan Brock and Jaden Hensley.

With the loss, Bell County moved to 5-7 on the season with a match-ups against Harlan County coming up on Thursday and Friday.

Jackson County improved to 5-8 on the season. The Generals took on the Clay County Tigers last night in Jackson County.
