Barons split two games in district action

SoVaNow.com / April 17, 2013
The Bluestone varsity baseball team split a pair of games this week as the Barons trounced district rival Central of Lunenburg 15-1, but they lost to Amelia in another high-scoring outing, 17-5.

The Barons faced off against the Chargers on Wednesday and brought their bats as they jumped all over the Central pitching staff. Antwan Tucker, Deion Mosley and Josh Balducci led the hit parade with three hits each, while Tre Watson had two hits and Keith Patrick and Kashawn HIlliard had one hit apiece. Darius Baskerville gave up only two hits over five innings as the game was shortened under the mercy rule.

On April 9, the Barons suffered a tough loss to Amelia 17-5. Javon Smith led the Bluestone effort with two hits, including a triple. Josh Briggs and Darius Baskerville also had two hits while Deion Mosley and Antwan Tucker each had one hit.

The Barons have a busy week as they play James River District foes Randolph-Henry Tuesday, Buckingham on Thursday and Nottoway next Tuesday.
