HAMILTON — Thursday night ended in disappointment for the Aggies at home as they lost to visitors Deshler.
Hamilton started well defensively giving up very little to Deshler for the first four innings of the game.
The Aggies, however, were not able to get going at the plate and went down looking a few times.
The last four innings of the game is where it all seemed to go wrong for the Aggies as several errors led to runs being scored for the visitors.
Four runs in total were let up in the top of the fifth and sixth innings.
Hamilton was able to respond with two runs of their own in the bottom of the sixth.
A comeback looked possible for the Aggies in the final inning of the game, but more errors from the Aggies helped Deshler run away with the game after scoring four more runs in the seventh.
With the score at 8-2 in the bottom of the inning, Brodie Moody hit a lead-off double out to center field, giving the Aggies some hope in the end of the game.
But, just as things were looking up, Jackson Chandler lined out into a double play, and the Aggies were just one out away from a loss needing six runs to bring them level with the visitors.
Payton Purser stepped up to the plate and hit a homerun out to left field, giving the Aggies something to celebrate on what had been a frustrating night.
The homerun was the last of Hamilton’s scoring on the night as Deshler was able to wrap up the game and secure the 8-3 win over the Aggies.
Thursday night’s loss brings Hamilton’s record to 8-10 for the season.
