Caps Come Up Short

Broughton lost 3-1 to a tough Heritage team in a game where pitching dominated the night for both teams.  The Caps took a 1-0 lead in the third when Dom Ford (Sr.) reached on an error, John Woods (Sr.) singled and Will Baldwin (Jr.) walked to load the bases.  Ford was able to score on a RBI fielder’s choice by Noah Yarborough (Sr.).  The Huskies tied the score at 1 in the bottom of the 3rd and took a 3-1 lead in the 4th.  Relief pitcher Baldwin took the mound in the 4th with Huskies on 1st and 2nd.  One pitch and a nice 6-4-3 double play by Ford and Kyle Ehlers (Fr.) got the Caps out of the inning.  Cam Epperson had a nice double in the 6th.  Broughton left 7 runners on base.  Highlights: solid pitching from Epperson to open the game and great effort and sportsmanship by all players.

Just two weeks ago the Caps sat in last place in a tough baseball conference.  After a strong finish, winning three of the last four, the Caps were able to climb to 5th place.
