Too many errors contributed to the end of baseball season for Marathon High boys Tuesday.
The Class 3A team traveled to Miami for the Florida High School Athletic Association District 8 semifinal game against the Lions of Sagemont School and lost 10-0.
“It didn’t go as we had hoped,” said coach Luis Leal.
The game ended in five innings per an FHSAA mercy rule that the game end early when there is a margin of 10 runs in the score.
Clay Daniels pitched all five innings, giving up eight runs on five hits, struck out eight and walked two.
“He pitched a great game, but defensively we made too many errors and allowed Sagemont to get ahead too much,” Leal said.
The Dolphins had only two hits.
“Overall, it was a great season,” Leal said of the team’s 17-12 record. “We were happy that we hit the 17-win mark and we had many positives this year. Our pitching staff lived up to the expectations and did a great job of keeping us in games all year.”
