Barons fall to Randolph Henry, Buckingham
SoVaNow.com / April 24, 2013The Bluestone Barons lost a pair of games this week to James River District rivals Buckingham and Randolph-Henry by nearly identical scores.
On Tuesday, the Barons dropped a 9-4 decision to the R-H Statesmen in action in Skipwith. On Thursday, the Barons were on the road in Buckingham where they lost to the Knights, 10-4.
In the game with Randolph-Henry, the Barons fell behind 2-0 in the second inning and saw the deficit widen to 5-0 in the fourth when the Statesmen tacked on three more runs. Randolph-Henry put the game away with four runs in the top of the sixth to make the score 9-0.
The Barons came back with a pair of runs in both the sixth and seventh innings, but it was too little, too late as the Statesmen took the 9-4 victory.
The losses to R-H and Buckingham leave Bluestone with a 2-3 record in the James River District, 3-6 overall, as the Barons prepared for action yesterday (Tuesday) against the Cougars of Nottoway County.
On Thursday, the Barons host the Goochland Bulldogs, with action getting underway in Skipwith at 6 p.m.
