April 9, 2018
A tough week came to a conclusion on Thursday afternoon when the Douglas Tigers dropped a 15-5 Northern 4A baseball decision at Reed.
Reed (5-3, 11-6) surged to an early lead it never relinquished at Lee Mitchell Field in Sparks.
For Douglas (3-5, 5-8), the defeat was the third in as many days, including a 12-2 setback at home against Reed on Tuesday and a 14-4 loss at Spanish Springs on Wednesday.
Reed surged to a 5-0 lead in the first two innings on Thursday before the Tigers scored twice in the third to make it 5-2. Reed answered with three runs in the bottom half of the third to take command and then scored once in the sixth to close out the game on the 10-run mercy rule.
Scott Cameron drove in four runs for the Raiders.
