Central Christian College’s Tigers went 0-3 on an Oklahoma baseball road trip late last week.
The Tigers started with a 14-4 loss to Northwestern Oklahoma University, followed by two losses to Oklahoma Wesleyan.
CCC is now 9-20 on the year, having lost its last eight. Coach Bob Marsh said the youth of his starting rotation has started to show through, as the Tigers basically have played higher-level teams with a staff that includes two freshmen and a sophomore.
CCC is supposed to be home Tuesday for two games against Manhattan Christian College, but chances are they’ll have to be rescheduled.
Northwestern Oklahoma 14, CCC 4 -- Sam Carr and Mickey Solarek both had two-run homers for the Tigers.
Oklahoma Wesleyan 7, CCC 1 -- Corey Gilbert’s RBI single drove in Solarek with the only CCC run.
Oklahoma Wesleyan 9, CCC 8 -- Central trailed 9-4 before a closing rally came up a run short. Solarek and Wayne Wooten both had a double and single, while Casey Hernandez had three RBI with a double.
Solarek was a bright spot for the Tigers by going 8 of 15 in the last week, with a homer, double and five RBI
