Potts Camp routs Cougars twice
By BARRY BURLESON
The Potts Camp baseball team opened Region 2-1A play last week with a pair of easy wins over Blue Mountain.
Game one lasted only three innings as the Cardinals dominated 15-0.
The winning pitcher was Cody Watts.
Getting multiple hits for Potts Camp were Kody Joyner (three doubles), Ben Bolden, Jesse Shaw and Zack Mayer.
Game three was twice as long, six innings, but the Cardinals still cruised, 15-5.
Brantley Harris earned the mound victory.
Connecting for multiple hits were Mayer (including a triple), Bolden, Shaw, K. Joyner and Josh Hailey.
P.C. vs. Ingomar
The Cardinals then visited Ingomar Friday night and dropped the district contest to the Falcons 5-0.
Potts Camp managed just two hits off Falcon pitcher Tyler Dowdy.
“We just did not hit the ball well Friday night,” coach Justin Weeden said. “For us to be successful in our division we have to hit the ball.”
Bolden took the mound loss for the Cards. He gave up seven hits over six innings and had three strikeouts. Ingomar’s big hitter was Tanner McCollum who was two for two with a two-run homer in the first.
“I felt good about the way our defense played, and giving up seven hits to a team like Ingomar is expected,” Weeden said. “They’re a very good hitting team.”
Potts Camp went to 3-3 overall and 2-1 in the district. The Cardinals are scheduled for two district contests this week – Tuesday at Myrtle and Firday at Byers. Next Tuesday, April 5, they host West Union in more district action.
