The Colonials season ended in heartbreaking fashion with a 5-4 extra inning loss to SB Adams. Clay sophomore Diego Cardenas kept the Colonials in the game by throwing 7 complete innings and getting out of jams late in the game to keep hope alive for Clay. Adams scored two runs late to tie the game before the extra frame. Clay’s offense had multiple chances late in regulation but just couldn’t push across the insurance run it needed. Junior Elijah Downs had a clutch pinch hit in the sixth but was stranded by the Eagle defense. Junior Hunter Aker took the loss after a bases loaded 2 out pop fly dropped in shallow right center field. Aker had earlier given the Colonials a 2-run lead with a 2-run opposite field double and scored after Diego Cardenas hustled to beat out an infield hit and advanced on an error. The Colonials season ended at 13-13. Thanks to the seniors (Benny Cardenas, Tyler Hodges, Cole Hobbs, Chris Casteneda and Alex Aasen) for their dedication and hard work.
