ATTICA - Calvert took advantage of 10 Seneca East errors, including five in a crucial seventh inning Monday, to claim a 5-2 win and hand the Tigers their first loss.
The Senecas (4-2, 1-0 Midland Athletic League) used single runs in the fourth and fifth to forge a 3-1 lead, and led 3-2 after the sixth before benefiting from shoddy play in the top of the seventh.
"Calvert played well. They outplayed us. We can't beat too many teams making 10 errors," Seneca East coach Frank Lamoreaux said. "Both pitchers did a good job and kept their teams in it. Fortunately for Calvert's pitcher, his defense showed up. Our pitcher, he might as well been playing in a field of daisies."
Jordan Bowerman (1-1) took the loss for the Tigers (5-1, 0-1), with Calvert's Alec Brickner getting the victory.
Ryan Huss had two runs and two singles for the Senecas, Brendan Deats singled twice and scored and Matt Frank added a run and single.
Billy Diehm and Dalton Wise each doubled for the Tigers, with Diehm adding a run and Wise knocking one in.
