COAL GROVE, Ohio — The River Valley baseball team produced just one hit Wednesday night during a 2-0 loss to host Coal Grove in an Ohio Valley Conference matchup in Lawrence County.
The visiting Raiders got a single from Jordan Gilliland in the top of the fourth, which served as one of only two baserunners that RVHS had in the setback.
The Hornets produced just three hits in the triumph, but the hosts also benefited from three River Valley errors in the wire-to-wire decision. CGHS led 1-0 after an inning of play and added an insurance run in the fourth for the 2-0 outcome.
Trey Farley took the loss for the guests after allowing three hits and two walks over six innings while striking out six. Daniel Rutherford allowed just one hit and one walk over seven frames while fanning 10 in the complete-game victory.
Rutherford singled home Jesse Rigsby in the first for a 1-0 lead. Rigsby and Conor Markins also had singles in the first, then went hitless the rest of the way. Travis Carey reached on an error in the fourth and later scored on a passed ball.
