Bandon's baseball team came up just short against visiting Toledo, falling 2-1 in a Sunset Conference game on Friday.
A couple defensive miscues and a lack of offense led to the loss for the Tigers.
Bandon led 1-0 for the first four innings, but an error, a walk, and a sinking line drive in right that Bandon nearly caught pushed the Boomers ahead for good.
Braydon Freitag was stellar in his first outing in essentially three weeks, striking out eight while allowing the two unearned runs on just five hits with two walks. Brynn Green had Bandon’s only hit.
“Just offensively today we didn’t have the approach,” Bandon coach Jay Ferrell said. “We were swinging at balls and watching strikes.”
Bandon visits Gold Beach on Tuesday then Reedsport on Friday.
