Coyotes can't stop red-hot Lakeview lineup in sweepREED CITY — Lakeview’s bats were smoking Friday night while Reed City’s were relatively quiet in a Central State Activities Association baseball doubleheader. The Wildcats won the first game 15-3 and the second contest 13-0. Both ended on the mercy rule with the first game going six and the second going five innings. Lakeview scored five runs in the second, seven in the fifth and three in the sixth. Jordan Straub had three hits for Reed City while Austin Hansen had one. Ray Phenix was the losing pitcher. Lakeview had two official home runs and one unofficial in the fourth inning of the second game. The unofficial one was actually a triple and out at the plate when the batter, who’s hit cleared the fence, failed to touch home and was declared out. But that was one of the few mistakes the Wildcats would make all night. They scored two runs in the first, one in the third, six in the fourth and four in the eighth. “They hit the ball very well,” Reed City coach Scott Shankel said. “They put the ball in play and hit it. We didn’t counteract it. We struggled at the plate again and had some crucial errors in the field.” The Coyotes didn’t have a hit in five innings. The games were played at the field behind the high school. The regular field by the Rocket Football Park is not usable yet because of wet conditions. “It’s early, I told them,” Shankel said. “But we have to be a little more focused on the game.” Reed City fell to 1-5 overall and 0-4 in the CSAA. The Coyotes play at Chippewa Hills Tuesday night. “It’s nice to get out there and not have a game get canceled,” Shankel said.
