Post 423 falls to bottom of Area IV

Rutherford County Post 423 dropped a pair of road games coming of a long two-week break, 8-7 to Caldwell County and 10-0 to Shelby.

The setbacks drop Post 423 to 3-6 on the year leaving them at the bottom of the Area IV standings.

On Wednesday against Caldwell County, Rutherford County had a commanding 7-3 lead in the late innings but surrendered five runs to suffer the walk off loss.

On Friday against Shelby, the offense only managed a pair of hits, one each from Dylan Parris and Jordan Strickland while Post 82 broke the game open with an eight-run outburst in the fourth inning.

Landis Jenkins took the loss in that contest.

Post 423 will look to reverse their fortunes as they host East Rutherford coach Bobby Reynolds and rival Cherryville Post 100 tonight at McNair Field. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
