  • Trouble at the plate sinks...

    A lackluster first inning and cold bats contributed to the Kingston Yellow Jackets losing 4-1 to the Oak Ridge Wildcats Thursday evening at Fort South West Point.

    “Tyler struggled some, as far as finding the strike zone,” Kingston Coach Bruce Robinette said. “But when he makes a pitch and get a ground ball, you have to make that play.”
