ANDERSON, S.C.- The Cobra bats were held in check as Coker lost its series opener to Anderson 9-3 on Friday (Mar. 4).
Coker's biggest chance would come in the sixth, when the visitors would plate two runs to cut into the deficit. Conner led off the inning with a walk, followed up by a single to left by Darius Coldiron. An error was made on the play, moving both men up a base. Lopez was hit by a pitch following a pitching change, and Frias delivered the clutch two-RBI single to right.
Dallas Baldwin (2-1) took the loss, tossing five innings allowing four runs, three earned on five hits. The right-hander also walked four and fired four strikeouts.
The Cobras will return to action tomorrow (Mar. 5) to finish out the series. First pitch of the doubleheader is set for 1:00 p.m.
