Dragons fall to Nottoway, rebound against Greensville

SoVaNow.com / May 12, 2010
The Park View Dragon baseball team downed Greensville, 9-3, last Thursday evening after the game was called at the end of five innings due to bad weather.

Playing in Emporia, the Dragons took a two run lead in the first inning after Clint Thompson and Rob Clary, who had gotten on base on errors, came home on a Joey Jones single.

Park View picked up two more runs in the third inning after Thompson doubled and Clary reached base on another error and Jones rapped a double to bring them home.

The Dragons boosted their lead in the fourth inning after Cody Spillane walked, Clary singled, Hudson reached base on another error and Jones got his third hit of the contest.

In the top of the fifth, Park View scored three more runs to make it a 9-0 game. D.J. Brown, Chris Pennell, and Jarrett Callahan all reached base and Thompson got a single and Hudson a double.

Greensville finally got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fifth and final inning when Wesley Gilliam hit a three run homer.

Pennell was the winning pitcher, striking out six batters and allowing only two hits and three walks. Jones led the offense with three hits while Thompson had two. The win gave the Dragons a 7-8 record overall and 6-4 in the district.

Earlier in the week on Tuesday, Park View fell to Nottoway, 5-2, after Nottoway took a 3-0 lead in the first inning after getting three hits.

Park View scored once in the first inning when Spillane walked and then scored on a double from Thompson, but Nottoway picked up two more runs in the fifth inning, making it a 5-1 contest. Park View scored once more in the bottom of the fifth to make it a 5-2 game. While they loaded the bases in the bottom of the seventh they failed to score, giving the Cougars the win.

Park View travels to Skipwith Thursday night (tomorrow) for a pivotal Southside District contest with the Bluestone Barons.
