Eisenhower dropped to 0-5 overall after a 10-1 Region 4 loss to visiting North East on Tuesday at Eisenhower High School.
Temperatures were below 40 degrees, and Eisenhower's bats couldn't heat up enough to keep up with the Grapepickers (2-2).
"We didn't seem so comfortable in the batter's box," said Ike coach R.J. Williams. "I'm sure they want more out of the season than what's going on so far. The last couple of games they stayed up (and kept positive). They didn't seem to get down."
