Comets make quick work of Colonels

SoVaNow.com / April 11, 2013
The Halifax County High School varsity baseball team made quick work of William Fleming Tuesday in the district opening, dousing the Colonels, 23-2.

The Comets had 19 hits, including a three-for-three afternoon from Thomas Cole, with three RBI. Will Harris went 2-for-3 and scored three runs, while adding an RBI.

Halifax batted only three times.

Halifax meets PH-Roanoke at home Friday, with a key stretch next week, including home games with Franklin County and GW-Danville.

Halifax broke the Fleming game open early.

The Comets erupted for six runs in the first inning, bolstered by five hits in a row.

The Comets got some kind of contributions from almost everyone in the lineup.

Leadoff hitter Ryan Yates could not get a handle on the Fleming pitching, but still had two runs scored. Nick Anderson went one-for-three with a run scored. Tyler Stephens went two-for-two with three runs scored and an RBI. Ryan Powell had a two-run double in the third.

Rufus Jeffress went one-for-two, with two runs scored, and an RBI. Patrick Barton had a 2-for-3 day, with two runs scored and five RBI. Tristan Howerton went 2-for-2 with two runs scored and four RBI.

12 Comets had RBI, as Fleming got battered. Cole, Chase Wilkerson and Seth Elliott combined on a four-hitter, with Cole getting the win. He fanned six, while Wilkerson had two strikeouts and Elliott one.

Cole had to come out of the game after being struck by a pitch in the top of the third.
