PROCTORVILLE — Bananas aren’t the only thing that come in bunches.

Chesapeake bunch together some hits and errors to score all its runs in one inning as the Panthers edged the Fairland Dragons 4-3 Saturday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

“They bunched all their hits in one inning and we couldn’t bunch anything together,” said Fairland coach Bryan Ward.

“It was a good game. We played decent defense except the one inning. We hit the ball hard at times and they made some nice plays.”

The Panthers (3-6, 1-3) got all their runs in the third inning.

With one out, Blake Ridenour singled, Kolton Webb reached on an error, and Casey McComas singled for a run.

After a fly out, Blake Lester reached on an error as two runs scored.

The Dragons (2-3, 0-3) got a run in the fourth.

Collin Damron doubled, moved up on a ground out and scored when Garrett Scheibelhood reached on an error.

A run scored in the fifth on a hit by Brett Curry and a double by Adam Taylor that scored pinch-runner Hayden James.

Fairland cut the deficit to 4-3 in the sixth when Tyler Campbell was safe on an error and Scheibelhood doubled home pinch-runner Tyler George.

Jacob Henson got the win with a four-hitter. He struck out three, walked two and gave up two earned runs.

Damron took the loss with a five-hitter. He fanned eight, walked none and all four runs were unearned.
