GREENVILLE – The Greenville Junior Thunder dropped a Tuesday night 8-3 seven-inning game to the visiting Dayton Classics at Sater Park.

The Classics junior squad took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first and made it a 3-0 game going into the bottom of the third with the local Thunder team plating a run to make it 3-1 after three complete.

Neither team would dent the board in the fourth but it was the Classics plating three fifth-inning runs to lead 6-1.

The Dayton squad scored 2-runs in the top of the seventh to go up 8-1 before the Thunder score 2-runs in the bottom of the inning for a final 8-3 score.

The Greenville Thunder Junior team played excellent defense and put runners on base but was unable to get the timely hits needed to earn a home win.

The 2020 Greenville Junior Thunder team includes: Carson Bey, Seth Delk, Alex Baumgardner, Ben Ruhenkamp, Hayden Bush, Zach Ullery, Jacob Treon, Alex Kolb, Aiden Psczulkowski, Hunter Parks, Tyler McKinnis, Issac Mills, Cayden Clark, Joe Ruhenkamp and A.J.
