AMBOY — The Amboy Clippers split a pair of games with Ashton-Franklin Center, starting with a 2-1 loss to the Raiders on May 1 at Ashton.
Justin Hart was stellar on the mound for the Clippers, allowing just two runs over 5 2/3 innings, but he could not get any offensive support.
Mitchell McLaughlin had two hits and scored Amboy’s only run on an RBI single by Clayton Kemp.
