Sidney dropped to 2-8 overall and 0-4 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division after a 6-3 loss to visiting Troy Monday.
The Jackets scored twice in the first but didn’t manage another run until the seventh.
“The sixth inning killed us,” said Sidney coach Thomas Goffena. “We gave up three runs without giving up any hits. We let the first four batters reach base without putting the ball in play, then an error, then another walk got us in a hole we could not get out of. We need to be able to throw strikes and make plays if we want to start winning games like this.”
Austin McLain and Conor Beer had two hits apiece for the Jackets.
