Field takes down Streetsboro 7-3 in big MAC matchup to remain unbeaten

MOGADORE, OH- The Field Falcons hosted the Streetsboro Rockets on Monday evening in a big mid season MAC matchup. The Falcons came in unbeaten at 10-0 including an 11-3 win over Revere on Saturday night at Kent State. The Rockets were looking for their third straight win.

Lefty Kayden Smith (2-0) got the start for the Falcons opposed by the Rockets Jack Pincoe (1-1).

Scott Wilson got the Rockets started in the top of the 1st with a leadoff single. He advanced to second on a stolen base and then to third on a ground out. Wilson came around to score on a Smith wild pitch giving Streetsboro a 1-0 lead.

That score remained until the Falcons broke it open with a 4 run bottom of the 3rd. Eader reached on an error, Kolesar singled and Smith walked to load the bases with no outs. Drexal McAmis then hit a sharp grounder that took a bad hop and could not be fielded cleanly at short scoring a run and keeping the bases loaded. Sam Confer grounded into a fielders choice scoring another run. Ethan Rinehart capped off the scoring with a 2-run single. Field had opened up a 5-2 lead after three.

Falcons reliever Deegan Yutzy, who came on to get the final out in the top of the 4th, pitched a 1-2-3 5th inning with a pair of strikeouts.
