Columbiana (16-7) dropped a tight one to Hubbard on Thursday afternoon. The Clippers were leading 5-1 heading into the sixth inning but four errors and some aggressive baserunning doomed Columbiana eventually falling 7-5 to the Eagles.
Offensively, Columbiana had eight hits including three from Bayden Pipoly. Riley McElwain added two doubles and Seth Spooner was 2-3 with a double.
McElwain got the start and went 5+ innings allowing 5 runs (2 earned) on four hits and striking out five. Seth Spooner finished the last two innings allowing 2 runs (0 earned) on 2 hits and he struck out 1.
Columbiana will look to rebound tomorrow when the Potters of East Liverpool will visit Firestone Park. First pitch is scheduled for 5 PM.
