West Branch High School
The Quakers dropped their 7th straight game Friday to West Branch 8-5. The Quakers started two pitchers seeing their first ever varsity action on the mound.
West Branch put runs up in the first four innings scoring 1 in the first, 1 in the second, 3 in the third, and three more in the 4th.
Salem’s offense was shut down all day until the 7th inning when they scored 4 runs all with 2 outs. The comeback effort would fall short however as Braydon Gibson fouled out to the third basemen to end the game.
The Quakers are now 2-9 overall and 1-5 in the NBC. Salem will host Springfield on Monday.
