CLOVER HILL - The Clover Hill Bucks took a big 4-2 win over the Elkton Blue Sox Sunday night to improve to 8-2 on the season.
Elkton started off the scoring in the top of the third as Lee Carneal came around to score, but Clover Hill answered back in the bottom of the third by bringing in a run from Alex Knicely.
“It was good, seemed like things were different. Seemed like we were going to get going early but things didn’t work out,” Bucks head coach Chris Cofer said about the game. “Kept us off balance all night and then their bullpens didn’t really do well for us. I think that the story of it was really we had a bullpen that kind of just kept us fresh and in our rhythm.”
Lee Carneal had a big home run in the top of the fifth that put the Blue Sox back in the lead, which was the last earned run of the night from Elkton.
The Bucks answered back in the bottom of the seventh with a home run from Cody Swisher that brought Ross French around to score.
“Swisher had a big hit there obviously, between him and the bullpen guys it kind of kept us where we needed to be, but that was a big hit from Swisher,” Cofer said.
The Bucks managed to bring home one more run from Addison Griffin in the bottom of the eighth, increasing their lead to 4-2.
The Blue Sox couldn’t get anything going in the top of the ninth as Clover Hill sealed the deal on the win. Elkton dropped to 2-5 on the season with the loss.
