MORRIS — The Ashby Arrows saw there season come to an end Thursday afternoon after an extra inning walk pushed the game winning run across the plate in a 2-1 loss to Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley in the Section 6A playoffs.

The Arrows were able to get on the board first as Jason Odens was hit by a pitch to walk in a run in the top of the fourth. The Wolverines countered in the bottom half scoring on a Tanner Taffe double.

The game became a pitchers duel with neither team gaining the upper hand in the seven innings scheduled. C-G-B was able to come out on top after a bases loaded walk scored the winning run in the eighth.

Ashby’s Dylan Barry took the loss, pitching a complete game and striking out six.

“It was a fun run while it lasted, but we just couldn’t get the job done today,” Arrows Coach Blaine Barry said.

The Arrows finish their season with a 6-15 record.
