After hanging with Region 8-A foe Athens Academy for most of the night, a series of late mistakes cost the Riverside Military baseball team in a 10-2 loss Friday night at Katterjohn Field in Gainesville. The Spartans (8-1, 1-0 region) pushed across nine runs between the fifth and sixth innings, turning a tight contest into another setback for the Eagles (4-8, 1-2). “Every game so far, we’ve been in it,” Riverside Military coach Mike Hutch said.
