Cardinals down Blue Mountain


Potts Camp ended its baseball season in winning fashion.

The Cardinals knocked off Blue Mountain 14-6 Friday and then coach Jeff King said his teams got two victories via the forfeit route from Ashland on Saturday. They finished the season 4-14.

“I’m pleased with the progress made this year,” King said. “We’re looking forward to the future.”

Korbin Stanton was the winning pitcher versus Blue Mountain, and he also produced four hits at the plate.

Dustin Minor and Billy Mitchell had two hits each for the Cardinals.

Potts Camp began the week on the diamond with a 16-2 setback to rival Hickory Flat on Wednesday.

Stanton took the loss.

The Cardinals had only two hits – one each from Eric Tucker and Shane Campbell.

That same day they lost a 7-3 decision to West Union.

“We played real well defensively,” King said, “but we couldn’t get the key hit.”

Tucker, who suffered the mound loss, was the leader on offense for Potts Camp. He had two hits, including a double.

Kurt Sanders added a hit.

On Thursday of last week, the Cardinals dropped a twinbill to Myrtle – 15-0 and 10-0.

Jake Howell was the losing pitcher in game one and Minor in game two.

Potts Camp managed just one hit in each game, those coming from Tucker and Wesley Benson.

Turning to girls’ fast pitch softball, Coach King said his Lady Cardinals’ scheduled doubleheader against Falkner on Tuesday of last week was rained out and will not be made up due to the start of playoffs. The Lady Cardinals completed their inaugural season with a 1-5 mark.
