Barons drop 3-2 decision to R-H

SoVaNow.com / May 15, 2013
The Bluestone varsity baseball team suffered a 3-2 loss to Randolph-Henry in James River District action on Thursday.

After seeing action earlier in the week washed out by rain, the Barons faced off with the Statesmen in a cliffhanger in Charlotte Courthouse. Both teams were evenly matched at the plate — the Barons rapped out six hits to seven for the Statesmen boys — but the difference was a fourth-inning run that broke a 2-2 tie.

Both teams scored single runs in the first and third innings, but the Barons were unable to break through after that point against sophomore hurler Derek Horvath, who pitched the last four innings of the game to pick up the win.

He relieved starter Rice Hancock, a junior. The two collected seven strikeouts against the Barons.

With the loss, the Barons fell to 4-6 in district action. Randolph-Henry improved to 8-4, good for third place in the league behind Amelia and Goochland.

The Barons are slated to return to action today (Wednesday) at Goochland, followed by a game Thursday at Buckingham.
