Taking advantage of some loose play in the field by the Clewiston Tiger junior varsity baseball team, Lake Placid rolled to a 13-8 win over the Tigers in a game played there Monday, Feb. 17.
The Dragons struck for four runs in the top of the second inning. Wil Ebersole walked and loped home on a double to right center by Angel Ojeda. Diego Mireles’s shot past the shortstop scored Ojeda. Mireles came home on a fielder’s choice grounder. Sam Weber-Callahan tripled home another run. Lake Placid added five more in the fourth inning, a double down the left field line by Weber-Callahan the big blow of the rally. Four final runs came home for the Green Dagons in the seventh as Gunner Smoak led the way with a triple.
Clewiston scored twice in the fourth and fifth innings and added four more in the sixth.
