Steady offense proved to be the theme of the opening night for Halifax County High School varsity baseball Tuesday night in South Boston.

The Comets battered a good Tunstall club, 14-4, winning by slaughter rule in the sixth inning.

Halifax scored twice in second inning, thanks to a double from Joey Duffer. Halifax then put up eight runs in the fourth, scoring in a variety of ways. Duffer and Zach Lowery scored on wild pitches. Alex Lowery delivered a key RBI double, and Troy Ferrell had an RBI single. Will Wallace had a bases-loaded walk.

Wallace followed with an RBI triple later in the fourth.

The Comets had 15 hits, spraying the ball over the Comet field.

Comet head coach Kenneth Day said Halifax had a productive day at the plate.

Halifax had some key defensive contributions and the pitchers worked well, throwing strikes.

Halifax put the ball in play with two strikes, and also hit the ball into the opposite field.

Drew Harlow started and worked into the fourth. Colt LaRue finished the game.

“I’m always happy playing well against a quality team like (Tunstall). A lot of runs, we faced a quality pitcher,” said Day.

Day said the Comets put the ball in play and hit well. He noted the pitching has got to come through for Halifax.
