Barons bounce back to vanquish Nottoway, 6-4 / April 29, 2010
Aside from their matchup with Park View, the Barons played one other game last week, prevailing over Nottoway, 6-4, on Thursday.

Starting on the mound for Bluestone was Franklin Watson, who limited the Cougars to four hits and three earned runs over six innings to pick up the victory. Watson struck out seven and allowed only three walks.

Bluestone took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first when L.J. Barnett hit a lead-off single and scored on hits by Jake Moore and Will Seate. The Barons upped their advantage to 2-0 in the third when they scored a single run on Watson’s one-out single and a double by Seate.

Nottoway stormed back with three runs in the top of the fourth, keyed by two singles and a man who reached base after being plunked by Watson. But the Barons came back from the 3-2 deficit in the bottom half of the inning with three runs of their own.

Amotio Smith and Brian Davis had singles to aid the rally, but the Barons also capitalized on some shoddy defense by the Cougars to score all three runs and go back on top, 6-3.

Nottoway scored a run in the top of the seventh to pull to within 6-4, but the Barons got out of the inning to seal the district victory.

Coupled with the loss earlier in the week to Park View, the Barons are now 4-6 overall, 2-3 in the Southside District.
