Double pain for struggling Muskets in Sunday shut-out

A SINGLE run in the top of the seventh innings was enough for Windsor to hand the Ipswich Musketeers their fifth straight loss in the opening game of a double header at Tivoli yesterday.

The visitors then made it six straight defeats for the home team handing them a 7-0 shut-out in the second game.

The teams were forced to play two seven innings contests yesterday after Friday night's opening game was washed out as rain set in.

Coach Greg Suthers said that late run in game one proved the pivotal moment his team.

"That run in the top of the seventh was a bit unfortunate," Suthers said.

"It gave them the momentum and we probably dropped our heads a bit. You can see the demeanour change.

"Usually teams tend to split double headers or you have two blow outs. Unfortunately that 1-0 loss set the tone for the second game and we never recovered."

The Muskets have a chance to change their fortunes in a midweek game against Beenleigh.
