The Bobcats, on the other hand, managed six hits, but left 8 runners on base, leaving them scoreless for the game. CBC’s Ross Westbrook got the win, while Alex Stephens took the loss for C of O. Timmy Townsend led the Bobcats at the plate, going 2-3.
Game 2 found the Bobcats producing only one run on seven hits and leaving 9 men stranded. Cody Pentecost and Eddie Devora each went 2-3 to lead the 'Cats. Central Baptist, however, posted 8 runs on 11 hits, to take their second win of the day. College of the Ozarks threw five pitchers, but starter Josh Neufeld suffered the loss.
