The Caps varsity played No. 1 Green Hope on Tuesday 5/13/14 in the first round of the State Playoffs.  A shaky defensive start to the game by the Caps helped the Falcons to a 2-run lead.  Solid defense and pitching by the Falcons would make that lead hold up as the Caps lost 5 – 0.

The Caps’ offense threatened in the first, third and fourth innings but each time the Falcons’ defense responded.  The Caps mustered 4 hits and 2 walks for the game, while the Falcons’ defense turned 2 double-plays to help their cause.

Starting pitcher Sophomore Thomas Walden and relief pitcher Junior Noah Yarborough kept the Caps in striking distance.

Offensive leaders for the game: Dom Ford (1 – 3), Eric Collins (1 – 3, 2B), Jake Baize (1 – 2, BB), and Will Baldwin (1 – 1, SAC).

(Varsity Record: Overall 12 – 13; Conference 6 -8)
