The Smith-Cotton Tiger baseball team couldn’t quite battle back from a rough start by Kody Kozak and lost 11-2 to the Hickman Kewpies April 25 at Dey Field at Liberty Park Stadium.

Kozak left in the first inning after giving up three runs on two hits, three walks and a Tiger error in the first and was saddled with the loss.

Tyler Slawson came on in relief with two Hickman runners aboard and pitched fairly well through the fifth before Tiger coach Jeff Mays brought Charles Chadwick in to start the sixth.

Hickman got four runs and five hits off Chadwick in the sixth to lead 11-2. Austin Bullard pitched the seventh for the Tigers.

S-C got a runner aboard in the first but he was wiped out on a strikeout-throw ‘em out double play to end the threat as S-C trailed 3-0 after one inning.

The Kewpies scored two more runs in the second on three hits and a walk to go up 5-0.

S-C went hitless against Hickman starter Jordan See until Chadwick blasted a solo homer over the wall in straightaway center, 375 feet from home plate, to get theirs within 5-1 after three innings.

See, a senior, threw six innings and allowed two runs and four hits to pick up the win. Sam Wright fanned the side in the seventh.

Hickman scored twice in the fourth to lead 7-1. S-C got a run back in the fourth when Ian Dotson doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly by Cody Brown to close within 7-2.

Hickman collected five hits and scored four runs off Chadwick in the sixth go up by nine runs.

Hickman outhit S-C 12-4 in the game.

The Tigers fell to 4-14 on the season.
