East­side all but dom­i­nated March, but its final game of the month was any­thing but, as the Ea­gles lost 13-3 to Stock­bridge Wed­nes­day.

It was the sec­ond meet­ing be­tween the two teams in the month with East­side dom­i­nat­ing the Tigers 15-2 on March 2.

Wed­nes­day’s game started off well for the Ea­gles, who put up three runs in the top of the first in­ning.

Joey Mitchell and Jake Wright both sin­gled and then Musashi Briem drew a walk to load the bases for des­ig­nated hit­ter Tee Sims. Sims hit a triple to right field to plate the three runs.

Those runs would be the ex­tent of the scor­ing for East­side (13-4, 7-2 4-AAA).

In the bot­tom half of the first Ty Raynor was on the mound for East­side and af­ter two quick outs, the Tigers (6-11, 4-5) put base run­ners on cour­tesy of an er­ror and a sin­gle be­fore the next bat­ter pounded out a dou­ble to make the score 3-2 at the close of the in­ning.

Stock­bridge hit Raynor hard in the third in­ning by string­ing to­gether four con­sec­u­tive hits, three of which were dou­bles as an­other three runs crossed the plate.

Jake Wright would come in to re­lieve Raynor on the mound and get the Ea­gles out of the in­ning.

In the fifth in­ning things con­tin­ued to go down­hill for East­side as Stock­bridge had four bat­ters reach base with­out the ben­e­fit of get­ting a hit cour­tesy of an er­ror, a cou­ple of walks and a bat­ter hit by a pitch.

A wild pitch and a dou­ble would score an­other three runs for the Tigers. Se­nior Matt Hitch­cock as­sumed the pitch­ing du­ties for the Ea­gles in the sixth in­ning. Stock­bridge would load the bases again with an er­ror, a hit bats­man and a walk be­fore Hitch­cock is­sued an­other walk which forced in a run.

The last Tiger to the plate hit a triple, driv­ing in three runs and end­ing the game as the Ea­gles suf­fered the run-rule loss.
