Chelsea Baseball Drops Two of Three to Tecumseh

The Chelsea baseball team had an important week in the SEC White last week with a pair of big three-game series.

They opened the week dropping two of three to Tecumseh.

Tecumseh came out on top in the opener 6-5. The Bulldogs fell behind early, trailing 6-1 after three, but began to chip away at the Indians lead.

Trailing 6-2 in the seventh, the Bulldogs loaded the bases with two out. Grant Barrett was hit by a pitch to force in a run and make it 6-3. Carson Robinson followed with a two-run single to cut the lead to 6-5, but a strikeout ended the game.

Robinson’s hit and two RBI led the offense, while Thomas Steele had a hit and RBI. Hunter Neff and Hunter Lay each had a hit and run scored.

Chelsea bounced back to take the second game 8-1. Nick Christian smacked a two-run shot in the second to give the Bulldogs the early lead. Four more runs in the fifth blew the game open as they cruised to the win.

Parker Shaw had two hits and two RBI and Christian his three-run homer to lead the offense. Robinson added two hits and an RBI and Neff a hit and RBI. Lay finished with two hits and three runs scored.

Christian was also the winning pitcher, allowing four hits and striking out one.

The rubber match of the series was a pitcher dual as Robinson faced off against the ace of the Indians Cameron Wagner.

Tecumseh picked up unearned runs in the third and fourth to take a 2-0 lead, but Robinson singled home a run to make it 2-1 after four.

Chelsea put the first two runners on in the seventh, but Wagner worked his way out of the jam and ended the game with a groundout.

The Bulldogs could muster just two hits against the flamethrower. Robinson and Barrett had the two hits for Chelsea.

Robinson pitched a complete game, allowed nine hits, struck out five, and walked zero.

Chelsea bounced back to take three big games from Ypsilanti Lincoln. Stats were not available at press time.
