Central Christian College’s baseball team has gone into an offensive slumber.

After starting the year 14-9, the Tigers now have lost 11 of 12 as their offense is giving them little chance to win.

Against College of the Ozarks here Friday, the Tigers lost 10-2 and 5-0 decisions.

The Tigers did have seven hits in the first game, but all were singles by seven different players. Zane Howard was credited with an RBI.

Robert Hawkins took the loss, though only one of the six runs he allowed in his seven innings were earned. The Tigers miscued six times in the field.

The Tigers collected only four singles in the second game, two by Lee Stoops. Howard threw a nice game for Central in defeat, as it was 1-0 until the sixth when the Bobcats plated four runs.

Howard did not walk a batter and fanned four.

The teams meet again today in a twinbill at Light Capital Diamond, with the first pitch set for noon.
