CASSVILLE — After tournament action in Wyandotte, Cassville, Monett and Carthage, the Seneca Indians played their first non-tournament game in Game No. 12 of the season.
The Indians opened Big 8 Conference play with a 10-5 loss to rival Cassville.
The Wildcats jumped out strong early, scoring all their runs in the first four innings with two each in the first and second, then six in the fourth.
The Indians pieced together four in the fifth and one in the sixth.
Cassville not only collected 13 hits against Seneca pitchers including Cory Gaines and Cameron Nesvold, but took advantage of six Indian errors, not a number conducive to winning baseball games.
Offensively, Seneca received a pair of hits each from Nesvold and Jayson Beard, while Alex Cook plated a pair of runs for the Indians.
Gavin White led Cassville with three hits, Sol Rainey had three RBI and Troy Rose tossed a complete game for the Wildcats.
Seneca — 5-7 overall and 0-1 Big 8 — hosts Monett on Thursday and this marks the third meeting of the season already between the conference and district rivals. Seneca and Monett split their first two meetings, Seneca winning in the Monett Tournament and Monett victorious in the Bill O’Dell Invitational in Carthage.
