Buestone battles for district position as season nears end / May 10, 2017

The Bluestone varsity baseball team maintained their sixth place position in the James River District and kept their postseason playoff hopes alive in action last week.

Buestone was scheduled to take on Central of Lunenburg in Skipwith Tuesday.

Lunenburg is locked in a tie with Amelia for second place in the JRD at 9-3. Randolph-Henry leads the district standings at 10-1.

Bluestone 2, Cumberland 1

This game was a very low scoring affair. The score remained 0-0 until the top of the fourth inning.

Josh Hite and Nic Lopez reached base on error and a hit by Lopez. Scott Nutter sacrificed the runners over to second and third with a nice sacrifice bunt.

Brendan King lined a shot into left field that plated both runners. In the sixth inning, the Dukes added a run to make the score 2-1.

Nutter came in to relieve Lopez in the seventh to pick up the save. Lopez pitched six strong innings, only giving up one earned run.

Bluestone 2, Nottoway 11

Bluestone watched this game slip away early and couldn’t recover in an 11-2 loss to Nottoway on Thursday.

Nottoway scored seven runs in the first inning, which proved to be too much to overcome. The Barons fought hard to stay in the game after that, but it wasn’t enough.

D. Fitzgerland earned the win for Nottoway. He threw seven innings, giving up two runs, seven hits, and striking out 11. Nathan Newcomb took the loss for Bluestone. He went three and a third innings, giving up nine runs, 11 hits, striking out three, and walking one.

Newcomb and Scott Nutter each drove in a run to lead the Barons.
