SCIOTOVILLE — The Green Bobcats weren’t about to look a gift horse in the mouth.

Green did what any good team does by taking advantage of their opportunities as the Bobcats used 10 walks and seven errors to fuel a 15-3 six-inning win over the Sciotoville East Tartans on Wednesday in a Southern Ohio Conference game.

While East pitchers struggled, Green’s Clay Applegate allowed five hits, struck out seven and walked just two as he picked up the win.

“We played real well defensively and Clay threw a good game. They walked a lot of batter and made some errors and we did what we had to do,” said Green coach Dan McDavid.

Applegate also went 2-5 with a double at the plate and scored three runs.

Tyler Crace went 1-3 with three RBI, Mark Allen 1-2 with three RBI and Steven Blanton 1-3 and two RBI. Trent Marcum was 1-3.

Green (2-1, 1-0) led 1-0 after the first inning and then got four runs in the second inning to lead 5-0.

Crace had a two-run bases-loaded single in the second inning rally. Allen and Blanton had two-run singles in a four-run sixth inning.
