Landan Clay

Landan Clay (No. 2) prepares to bat at a previous game.

Multiple times last Wednesday, the Delta High School baseball team had undefeated Coal Ridge on the ropes. After a hot start and a late comeback, the Panthers ultimately fell 6-5 on a walk-off run in the bottom of the seventh inning.

“We battled really well,” Delta coach Steve Reiher said. “We just put ourselves in a couple tough positions where we were giving up free bases and had a couple errant throws. Next thing you know, we’re on the wrong side of things. I thought we swung it well most of the time, we just left more runners on than we should have. It’s tough to load the bases up against a team like that and not convert.”
