Comet jayvees drop Park View
SoVaNow.com / March 20, 2017Halifax County High School jayvee baseball defeated Park View in South Hill Friday, 8-2.
Halifax scored early and then steadily built an advantage.
With one out, Dylan Clark singled to center, then was forced out at second on 4-3 hit into by Mabe. Back to back singles by Shaun Perkins and Colt LaRue (RBI) put HC on top 1-0. Perkins later scored from third (on throw down) when LaRue stole second.
The Comets added another run in the fourth when Perkins singled to right, advanced to second on a fielder’s choice. Perkins took third on a passed ball. He scored on Zach Lowery’s double into the right center gap.
Halifax padded its lead in the fifth after Zach Perkins drew a walk and stole second.
Clark walked with one out, then both Comet runners advanced on a passed ball. Tyler Mabe delivered a two-run single down the left field line. Mabe later scored on E2 (throwing to third) on stolen base attempt.
Halifax finished the scoring with two runs in the seventh. Mabe and Perkins singled to open the top half of the frame. After LaRue struck out, with the hit and run on, Dillon Davis hit a shallow pop into right field “Bermuda Triangle” between the rightfielder and the PV second and first basemen. This sent Mabe and Perkins scampering back to their bags only, for the ball to fall with all runners safe and the bases loaded.
Lowery looped short fly into right, and courtesy runner Luke Fulcher was forced. Perkins then scored when Lowery got into designed run down between first and second. Lowery ended up safe at first.
Lowery went five scoreless innings, striking out four, walking one and yielding just two hits.
Brock Poole relieved in the sixth. He gave up three straight hits and two runs. Will Wallace closed the door in the seventh.
