SOUTH POINT, Ohio — The River Valley baseball team is still searching for its first league win of the season following a 7-4 setback to host South Point Friday night in an Ohio Valley Conference matchup in Lawrence County.
The Raiders (4-14, 0-6 OVC) trailed 1-0 after one full inning of play and were down 2-1 through two complete, but the guests rallied with two scores in the third to claim a 3-2 cushion after three full frames.
RVHS added another run in the top of the fifth for a 4-2 lead, but the Pointers countered with four scores in the bottom half of that frame to secure a 6-4 advantage — one the hosts would never relinquish. SPHS tacked on an insurance run in the sixth to wrap up the three-run decision.
Timmy Kemper went the distance for River Valley and took the loss after allowing seven runs, seven hits and four walks over six innings while striking out six. Boggs got the winning decision after surrendering four runs, five hits and two walks over seven frames while fanning 11.
Zach Crow and Trey Noble both led the Raiders with two hits apiece, while Chris Clemente added a solo homer in the second. Crow scored twice and Noble drove in three RBIs in the setback.
Whitt led the Pointers with two hits. Lien scored three times in the triumph, while Boggs and Brandon both drove in a pair of runs.
