Sarasota Riverview 4
Sickles put up two runs in the seventh inning and had the bases loaded, but couldn’t scratch across the evener falling to Sarasota Riverview on the road on Friday. The Rams got a leadoff triple from Dylan Wilds in the third, who would score on a Pip Smalley ground ball and Riverview would add three more runs in the frame. Senior Karson Ligon allowed just one hit (a Chase Conville double) in his six innings of work earning the win, and Smalley would finish off the game and earn the save. Sickles senior Bobby Christy pitched 3 1/3 innings of relief, allowing just one hit and striking out six.
