EV-W baseball team loses ground at Howard Lake

The Eden Valley-Watkins baseball team dropped a double-dipper Friday, May 17, at Howard Lake, 5-4 and 9-0. Eagles’ coach Mike Tomsche is well aware of the problem areas. “We committed three errors in game one, that played a big role in our 5-4 loss. If we make those plays we win; plain and simple.” The Eagles’ problems seem to be mostly centered on the basics and they are costly. “In game two, errors and walks were our downfall. We need to make the plays behind our pitchers and get our bats going. We are not doing the little things to win close ball games.” Tomsche said.
