Baseball: East Rock blanks Riverheads

By

Riverheads’ baseball team suffered its first loss Tuesday, falling to East Rockingham 4-0.

The Eagles scored one in the first, one in the third and two in the sixth off Gladiators starter and closer Ethan Whitehead. East Rock also got help from Riverheads (5-1-1), which committed five errors behind their pitcher.

Despite the loss, Whitehead pitched well, said head coach Rodney Painter.

“He pitched a strong game,” Painter said. “We made mistakes here, and their pitcher did a good job.”

Eagles starter Noah Brown notched the complete-game shutout win, yielding just two hits.

The Gladiators are back in action Thursday at Bath County.
