The Ada High School baseball team lost to county rival Hardin Northern 13-3 in a non-conference makeup contest under the park lights Friday evening.

Ada dropped to 6-13 with the defeat. HN improved to 12-9 with the run-rule shortened, six-inning win.

The Polar Bears jumped on top early as they scored four runs in the first frame with the aid of three errors, a single and a walk.

Ada got an infield hit in the home first from junior Jacob Sutherly, but were unable to score.

HN tacked on three more runs in the second frame to build a 7-0 margin. Kadin Phipps reached on an error but was caught stealing in the Bulldog second.

In the Northern third doubles by Zach Spearman and Branson Grindell, a single and an error led to four more runs and an 11-0 Bear cushion.

Ada got on the scoreboard with three runs in the bottom of the fifth. Kaine Fisher scored on the back end of a double steal. Levi Sousley crossed home on an RBI single.

HN came back with two runs in the top of the sixth. Preston Wykes then struck out the side in the home sixth to end the game.

Spencer Wall started on the mound and took the loss. Sousley relieved in the third inning.
