The Park View Dragons are off to a 2-1 start on the season after downing the Bluestone Barons 6-1 in South Hill on Friday night.

The varsity boys played a strong defensive game, said Park View head baseball coach Mike Greene.

“It was a good ball game. Bluestone hit the ball, they just hit it right to us,” said Greene. “And we caught it.”

Charlie Mills pitched all seven innings for the Dragons and allowed only two hits, including a home run in the second inning for Bluestone’s only score. The other hit came later in the game.

The Dragons responded with three runs in the bottom of the third and another three runs in the bottom of the fourth.

Offensively the Dragons looked sharp. “We had several kids who got more than one hit and that’s a good sign this early in the season,” said Greene.

The Dragons will face Prince Edward this Thursday in their first Southside District game and will play Friday against a homeschool team from Richmond and the Garden City, N.Y. traveling high school club on Saturday.
