Green Hope Defeats Broughton

Broughton could not get the offense going and allowed one big inning in losing to the Green Hope Falcons 7-1.

Jared Cross (Jr.) started on the mound and pitched two solid innings as did fellow junior Whitty Williams. The two combined to allow only 1 run off 3 hits. The Caps missed a scoring opportunity in the 3rd when Will Baldwin (Sr. SS) was hit by a pitch, Warren Grady (Jr. CF) walked and Mathis Dean (Soph. 1B) reached on an error to load the bases. Unfortunately, the Caps were not able to take advantage of the Falcon’s miscues. Green Hope sent 11 batters to the plate in the 5th, scoring 6 runs to break the game open.

In the Broughton 6th, Grady walked and made it to third on a couple of wild pitches. Kyle Ehlers (Soph. DH) walked and stole second with Grady scoring the Caps only run when the throw made it to the outfield grass. Dylan Lamm (Sr. LF) followed with a sharp single to left but both runners were left stranded.

William Gilchrist (Jr.) Eli DeJesus (Sr.), Ehlers (Soph.) and Grady (Jr.) also saw time on the mound.

Interesting stat: Warren Grady walked in each of his three at-bats; George House (Sr. C) had a productive ten-pitch at bat.

Defensive highlights: two nice double plays, 6-4-3 (Baldwin-DeJesus-Dean) and a rare 1st to 2nd and back to 1st (Dean-Baldwin-Dean).

Next game: Friday, March 18th @ Broughton vs Millbrook @ 4:30.
