Spring River drops pair

Thursday, June 24, 2010

On June 20, the Spring River senior softballers made the trip to Jonesboro to play softball.

In the Jonesboro game, which was close all the way, Spring River was behind by a run or two and could not seem to get ahead.

Spring River did have a chance to pull it out in the last inning, but didn't get the job done.

Jonesboro wins this one 13-11.

Jim Drozd and Joe Bonds hit homers for Spring River.

Bill Stuart made some good defensive plays at third base.

In the Trumann game, Spring River jumped to a 5-0 lead, but inning-by-inning, they let the lead slip away and lost the game 16-13.

In the last few games, crucial errors let innings continue when they should have been over.

Spring River has been in an offensive slump for the last five games, which the squad has lost, despite holding leads in most.

Herb Hess pitched both games for Spring River.
