SYCAMORE — The Hubs are struggling at 2-13 on the season and fell 18-0 to Sycamore (15-5) Tuesday.
Things turned south quickly as Rochelle gave up nine unearned runs off of three errors in the second inning.
“Sycamore is probably the conference favorite,” began Rochelle head coach Nick Reineck. “But they hadn’t been playing that great as of late. We just let them take advantage of us.”
Todd Highland started on the mound for Rochelle and pitched well, according to Reineck, but the defensive errors were too many for the Hubs to overcome.
“We are really struggling to make important plays right now,” he said. “We need a couple hours of working on our fly balls and ground balls. We’ve proven we can’t really do that right now.”
