The Goshen Eagles kicked off the 2017 regular season with a 14-7 loss against the Carroll Eagles on Monday morning in Goshen.

“I thought they played really well defensively– we only had one error in the field,” said Eagles head coach Robby Kinsaul. “We hit the ball pretty well for it being the first game.”

Jackson Kyzar got the start for the Eagles and threw the first four innings of the contest and gave up three runs. Evan Rose pitched for two innings, Cage Freeman threw for  a third of an inning and Hunter Williams pitched for an inning.

“Our pitching is a little bit behind our bats right now, but the good thing is it’s early,” Kinsaul said. “The things that we didn’t do very well today are correctible. I have a lot of confidence in our guys that we can get that corrected.”

The Eagles finished with a total of seven hits on opening day.

Blake Childs finished 2-4 with one RBI and a run scored. Dalton Bunce was 2-2 with two doubles and two RBIs. Brian Redman finished 1-3, as did Hunter Williams and Mitchell Rushing.

The Eagles will be back on the field this afternoon when they take on Ashford beginning at 4 p.m.
