The Tigers dropped a doubleheader to the Reno Knights at Reno High on Thursday. Reno won the first game, 5-4, and took the second, 10-3.
Douglas led the first game 4-2 heading into the bottom of the fifth, before back-to-back errors on a wild pitch allowed two Reno runs to score. The next Knight hitter collected a single to win the game.
The Tigers will play host to the Sundevils today for a doubleheader that is scheduled to start at noon at DHS. Douglas will play host to the Reno Knights on Friday for a doubleheader that will start at 4 p.m.
