ADEL — Stepping out of conference play, Newton’s Cardinals came up short against host Adel-DeSoto-Minburn’s Tigers Tuesday.

The Tigers, who are ranked eighth in Iowa Class 3A, jumped out to a quick lead with two runs in the first inning. The Cardinals scored single runs in the third and fourth innings, but the Tigers matched those and won 4-2.

Falling behind early, Newton cut the lead in half in the top of the third inning. Derek Wrage and Jeff Stanton had back-to-back walks and Bryce Tish’s single loaded the bases. Chandler Sturtz grounded out to drive in a run, but that was all the Cardinals could get out of the situation.

ADM answered with a run in the bottom of the inning. The same happened in the fourth.

Mike McCormick singled with one out in Newton’s fourth. Wrage drew another base-on-balls and Stanton reached on an error. With two gone, Sturtz forced in a run with a walk.

Jordan Travis took the pitching loss for Newton. Travis worked four innings, allowing four runs on four hits and three walks. He struck out two. Stanton pitched two one-hit, scoreless innings. Stanton walked one and struck out three.

McCormick, Tish and Michael Barr each had a single for the Cardinals.
