MORAVIA — A couple of missed opportunities and cold hitting were evident as New London would halt Moravia’s five-game winning streak with a 12-0 victory over the Mohawks.
Moravia had three good chances to do some damage but New London freshman southpaw Seth Bailey always had an answer.
With a runner on third with two outs in the first inning, Bailey would draw a pop fly to get out of the inning. Moravia then had the bases loaded with one out in the second inning but a quick line out to the shortstop would catch the runner on second leaning the wrong way leading to an inning-ending double play.
Then in the sixth inning, with Moravia trailing 12-0 at this point, the Mohawks loaded the bases with nobody out. New London’s Darius Whaley, who came in for the sixth inning, would then strikeout the next three Mohawks to complete the shutout.
Jaxon Allen and Shae Summerfield did most of the damage for New London, both finishing with four RBIs.
The Mohawks were limited to four hits while Hunter Arbogast took the loss on the mound after giving up five runs, three earned, on five hits with one walk and three strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.
Moravia (14-9) get a quick turnaround as they travel to face Ankeny Christian Academy (15-8) on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
