The Creston freshman baseball team dropped both games of a doubleheader with Norwalk and a single game against Orient-Macksburg.

Norwalk beat the Panthers by scores of 10-0 and 9-4.

In the opening game of the doubleheader, Cody Crawford pitched three innings, giving up four runs with five walks and two strikeouts. Colton Bolinger pitched two innings of relief, giving up six runs and walking one.

In the second game, Bolinger took the start on the mound and gave up three runs in three innings, with three walks and one strikeout. Brenden McDowell pitched two innings of relief, giving up six runs with three walks.

“This was the first time all year the boys actually got to play with a lead,” Creston freshman coach Anthony Donahoo said. “Hung right there with them until that last inning, but overall, had some of our best baseball. Freshman baseball is all about getting better and I feel like the kids are doing that each week.”

McDowell started on the mound, giving up six runs in three innings on two walks with two strikeouts.
