The Redskins are stumbling down the stretch when they need to be hitting their stride. After an 18-2-1 start, Loudon has gone 3-6 in their last nine games.
The struggles continued Friday when they hosted Carter as part of the Loudon Invitation Tournament, a tournament scheduled to give the team a final tune up before the district playoff, which begins Thursday.
The game was tied at three heading into the final inning of play when the wheels fell off.
After coming back from a three-run deficit Loudon let mistakes pile on mistakes.
A ball that would have been out number three in the inning instead fell safely in the outfield after Caleb Holt called off Corey Powell and failed to make the play.
The misplayed ball snowballed into a four-run inning that would cost the Redskins the game. Loudon played again Saturday after the News-Herald press time.
They travel to McMinn Central Monday, 6 p.m., to finish the regular season.
