DEQUEEN â€“ The Bauxite Miners dropped a 6-5 decision to the DeQueen Leopards on Friday night in 7-4A conference play in DeQueen.
Down 6-2 going into the seventh inning, the Miners (8-10, 2-4 7-4A) scored three runs in the top of the seventh, but fell just short.
â€śWe had the tying run at second and the winning run at first,â€ť Bauxite Coach Michael Mattox said of the last inning. â€śWe had the double steal on, and on the same pitch, we struck out to end the game. We were hoping for a throw there to see what happened, but we didnâ€™t get one.â€ť
