UTICA — After a very successful weekend in West Virginia, the Utica Post 92 baseball team had a letdown at home on Tuesday.
The Royals fell to Granville Post 398, 9-1, in a game shortened by Tuesday night’s thunderstorms.
Maybe the team was tired from playing five games on a long road trip. Maybe the team struggled with just nine players suiting up. Whatever the reason, coach Mike King wasn’t making excuses.
“There are no excuses for a loss,” King said. “We had just nine guys but, with the guys I put out on the field, I expect to play good baseball. We were flat-out outplayed in every aspect of the game.”
