DIXON — The Licking Wildcats saw their seven-game winning streak end on Monday night at Dixon with a 3-2 loss.
Tied at two runs apiece through five innings, Dixon scored an unearned run in the sixth and worked out of a one out, two on jam in the seventh to escape with the victory. The unearned run was a recurring theme for the Wildcats.
None of Dixon’s three runs were earned as Licking committed six errors. Licking starter Wilson Murray was the victim of the poor defense.
Murray worked six innings, allowed five hits, and struck out five. He did not walk a batter but was saddled with the tough luck loss.
“Wilson pitched extremely well,” Licking Coach Harv Antle said. “He certainly pitched well enough to win, and that probably should have been a shutout for him. We definitely need to clean things up defensively heading down the stretch and into the district tournament.”
Carter Rinne and Seth Farris led Licking offensively. Rinne was 3-for-4, Farris went 2-for-4, and Connor Medlock chipped in with two hits
In the game, Licking outhit Dixon 8-4, but the Wildcats stranded eight baserunners. The Wildcats fell to 11-4 with the setback.
 The JV game was rained out with Dixon leading 3-1 after one inning of play.
