Trigg County split a doubleheader Saturday at Union County and missed on its bid for the school's first 3-0 start since the 1990s.
Trigg won the opener 6-2, but Union County took advantage of four Trigg errors and five walks to win 13-3 in six innings in the second game.
Ashton Plymale pitched six strong innings in the opener, allowing two earned runs in six innings while striking out five batters.
Savion Radford and Benson Stallons had two hits for the Wildcats. Will Allen had an RBI double, and Micah and Darrin Brown had run-scoring hits.
In the second game, Trey Hutchison had four hits for Union County, including a two-run home run over the left centerfield fence to end the game via the 10-run mercy rule.
Union County was helped by five Wildcat walks and four errors that staked the Braves to a 10-2 lead after three innings.
Radford had two hits, including a triple, and Jake Terrell had a double for the Wildcats, who managed just four hits.
Trigg County (2-1) will travel to Stewart County, Tennessee, Monday before returning home Tuesday for a stretch of nine home games in their next 10 contests.
