The Raiders’ league title aspirations took a blow on Thursday with an upset loss in Minden.
Reed allowed eight runs in the fifth and sixth innings of a 12-8 loss at Douglas and fell to 14-4, 7-4—three games back of first place.
The Tigers improved to 6-12, 3-7.
Douglas outhit Reed 16-11 and won despite handing out eight walks. The Tigers’ pitching worked around the 19 total base runners, forcing the Raiders to strand 11 runners.
The Raiders scored four times in the top of the fifth to grab a 6-4 lead, but the advantage was short-lived. The Tigers scored three times in the bottom of the inning and five more times in the sixth to open the DI North contest up.
Brandon Kernan went 3-for-4 with a double, 2 RBIs and a run scored in the loss.
Reed will attempt to salvage a season split with Douglas on Saturday at Greater Nevada Field. First pitch is at 4 p.m.
