The TMP-Marian Monarchs opened their season with a pair of 3-2 losses to Scott City yesterday at Larks Park. The Monarchs rallied with one in the seventh in game one but had a runner thrown out at second trying to stretch a single into a double. Shane Zimmerman takes the loss in the opener allowing two earned runs on two hits while striking out seven and walking four over five innings.
The Beavers did all of their scoring in game two in the first two innings. TMP scored a run in the first and had the bases loaded with just one out but back-to-back out strikeouts ended the threat. Cameron Brinn takes the loss in game two allowing all three runs on two hits, striking out three and walking five.
