Dragons go 1-2 in spring break baseball games / April 03, 2013
The Park View Dragons went 1-2 during their spring break week, losing to Prince Edward and a Richmond home school team and beating the traveling Garden City, New York ball club.

The Dragons played a stellar game against Garden City Saturday at Parker Park.

The Dragons came back from a 7-3 deficit to take an 8-7 lead in the sixth inning and held the New York visitors at bay for the rest of the game.

“It was a good come-from-behind win for the kids,” said Park View baseball head coach Mike Greene. “We’d lost two games this week to Prince Edward and the home school team and we needed a win.”

Bret Cliborne started the game and threw well, said Greene. McKenzie Hadley pitched the fifth and sixth innings and Clay Walker closed out the game.

“We had timely hits. It was a great team effort,” said Greene.

Earlier in the week, the Dragons lost to Southside District rival Prince Edward, 11-4, and a homeschool team out of Richmond by a 3-1 score.

Park View fell out of contention against Price Edward in the fifth inning due to errors, said Greene.

“We had more errors than any Park View team’s ever had in an inning,” said Greene. “We missed a couple of scoring opportunities early and they never looked back.”

The Dragons were up 3-1, then Prince Edward took a 7-4 lead before the Eagles scored four more runs in the sixth.

The final score was 11-4.

The Dragons played the homeschool team out of Richmond at Dorey Park and lost 3-1.

Brett Cliborne and Christian Mosier each had two hits during the game and Kendal Kelly only gave up five hits.

The Dragons play on Thursday and Friday against GW-Danville and Tunstall.
