The Caps proved they could play as a team with Good Pitching, Defense and Hitting 

Not sure if it was the inspiration of dedication ceremony of the 1987 State Championship Team or what but the boys of BHS played as men yesterday.  Jr. Joe Bialkowski started them off on the right foot giving them 6 great innings and Jr. Chris Schrum going the 7th.  The defense backed up the pitching making zero errors.  The Bat Rack was alive producing 10 runs on 11 hits.  Soph. Rob Case had a day going 3-3 with two doubles and scoring 2 runs, bringing his batting average up to a team leading .368.  The Caps also got contributions for Jr. Wilson White 2-3 (2RBIs 2R), Jr. Austin Walker 1-1 (3BB, 2R), Jr. Jackson Williams 2-4 (3RBIs) and Sr. Zi Hopkins 1-2 (2B, RBI)

The Caps next game will be at Heritage on Tuesday night 7:00pm

In the second Yarborough starts the action with a single.  John Baldwin’s single drives in pinch runner Andrew Saba.  An error on a ground ball by Sam Morris allows Baldwin to score.  A base hit by Eric Collins puts runners on second and third.  A single by Eller plates pinch runner Conner Johnson to end the scoring.  This time Yarbourgh gets around a base hit with two strikouts to end the second. 
Although they hit the ball hard off of a good pitcher,  Broughton failed to score until the seventh inning.  In the fourth inning Wakefield scores one run on a Broughton error.  They get their first earned run in the fifth to trail 5-2. 
Daniel Wheless drives in Eric Collins with a double after Collins led off the seventh on a base hit to end the Broughton scoring.  Connor Johnson comes in to pitch in the 6th inning and holds Wakefield scoreless to claim the save.
