Mac bats silent against Noble
For the second time in two weeks, MacArthur struggled mightily at the plate and ended up getting no-hit. The Highlanders fell to Noble, 13-3, at home.
The loss dropped Mac to 2-5 overall and 2-1 in district play. Mac gets another shot at Noble today at 6 p.m. on the road. Sophomore Reed Webb is expected to be on the mound.
Mac starter Austin Weryavah was able to keep his team in the game for much of his four-plus innings pitched, but his defense didn't help him as it committed two errors in a disastrous fifth inning that saw Noble score three runs to retake a 6-3 lead.
With a man on first and one out, Weryavah got an easy ground ball to third base that John Sauseda fielded cleanly, but threw into right field. The ball then scooted under rightfielder Kyler Arter's glove and went to the wall scoring the runner from first and putting the batter at third.
That play was followed by a double and then a triple two batters later to give the Bears the lead.
