Comet notebook / June 11, 2017

Starter Carlton Redd settled down after a rocky first. Redd worked five and a third inning, facing 20 batters. He struck out six, did not walk a batter, allowed five hits and two earned runs. Reliever Drew Harlow worked five and two-thirds, facing 25 batters. He fanned five, walked two, allowed three hits and two earned runs.

Alex Lowery took the loss. He worked two and a thirds innings of pressure-packed pitching. Lowery faced 13 batters, fanned three, walking one. He allowed three hits and one earned run.

Halifax finished with five hits. Andrew Abbott, Clay Lloyd, Brayden Moore, Josh Barker and Shaun Perkins got base hits.

SETTING THE STAGE: Abbott was the real deal in the win over Prince George. He worked the complete game, giving Halifax more options for the state final.

Halifax did not have that much offense. Abbott went two-for-three, while Harlow was 2-for-4 with both runs scored. Barker went two-for-three.

Collectively, the rest of the Comet offense still struggled, but managed to pull out the win.

LEFT ON BASE: Halifax stranded 10 runners in the win over Prince George. The Comets left seven men on base against Briar Woods.
