The Nebraska City Post 8 Seniors (6-9) were held scoreless for the final four innings and fell to the Omaha Concordia Mustangs 11-3 on Monday night at Clemmy Holmes Field in five innings.
This game marked Nebraska City’s first loss at home since June 5 and their biggest margin of defeat since a 14-1 loss at Omaha Roncalli on May 30.
Nebraska City started Bryce Levy (0-3) on the mound for the third time this season, and he took the loss after tossing 96 pitches in four innings.
Things went south for Levy fairly quickly. With bases loaded and two outs in the top of the first, Concordia catcher Grant Meyer launched a grand slam over the left field fence to give the Mustangs an early 4-0 lead. Concordia never lost their lead.
The Mustangs loaded the bases in the first with an error and two walks. In his third start of the season, Levy gave up six walks, 11 runs (four earned), and eight hits. He also struck out two batters.
Omaha Concordia starter Damon Kissell was shaky to start, as Nebraska City scored three runs on two hits and two errors in the bottom of the first to make it a 4-3 ball game.
Kissell surrendered only two hits over the final four innings, struck out five Post 8 Seniors and only walked two to earn the win in a complete game. All three of Nebraska City’s runs scored were unearned, and they only managed four hits all night.
The Post 8 Seniors opened a three-game road trip on Tuesday night, taking on Waverly at Lawson Park.
