ELDON -- The Eldon Mustangs had their chances.

But Ben Smith and the Springfield Fightin’ Irish made sure they didn’t capitalize.

The Mustangs had 10 baserunners against Smith, a University of Missouri recruit, but only one was able to cross the plate Tuesday as Eldon dropped a 5-1 decision to Springfield Catholic in a Class 4 sectional game at McMillen Field.

“We had a couple innings where things just didn’t fall our way,” Eldon coach Chad Hinds said. “We didn’t get the timely hits we needed, ones that we normally get.

“We just had a rough day on the wrong day.”
