The Park View varsity baseball team finished the regular season with two wins and a loss, coming in games last week against Greensville, Brunswick and Windsor.

The Dragons downed Greensville 7-6 and routed Brunswick 18-3, but they lost to Windsor 5-4. They started competition this week in the 3A East Conference 25 playoffs as the #3 seed in the eight-team field. Their first round opponent on Monday was sixth-seeded Southampton (see related story).

Here’s a recap of the games played last week:

Tuesday, May 19

Park View 7, Greensville 6

With Brett Cliborne pitching for Park View, the two teams battled to a 2-2 tie after two innings. Windsor jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but not to be left behind, the Dragons answered the challenge as Cliborne and JW Murray scored runs in the second.

The game remained tied until the fifth inning when both teams scored again. Park View posted one run in the inning and Greensville had three, putting Greensville ahead, 5-3.

Park View rallied again in the sixth inning as Trae Smith, Cliborne, Josh Hadley and Stephen Wolfe all scored runs, making it a 7-5 ballgame. In a final rally attempt, Greensville picked up one more run but it was not enough to quench the fire started by the Dragons as they prevailed, 7-6.

Wednesday, May 20

Park View 18, Brunswick 3

On Wednesday the Dragons met the Brunswick Bulldogs. After their loss in Lawrenceville in April, the Dragons were ready to redeem themselves and they did so with style. From the start the Dragons were on point. Grayson Wise retired the first three Bulldog batters but struggled in the second, allowing three runners to score until David Cleaton relieved him.

The Dragons offense more than made up the difference, posting runs in each inning to leave Brunswick in the dust, 18-3. Hunter Kendrick pitched the final inning for the Dragons.

Friday, May 22

Windsor 5, Park View 4

The Dragons ended their week with a 5-4 setback at Windsor in a make-up game played Friday. Bubba Gosney started on the mound for the Dragons. Park View got a run by David Cleaton in the first inning, but Windsor responded with a run of their own in the home half of the frame.

JW Murray scored again in the third, but once again, Windsor matched the run with one of their own. The fourth and fifth innings were quiet for the Dragons but Windsor added two runs to go ahead, 4-2. The Dragons showed signs of life as Christian Moser and Josh Hadley each scored to tie the game 4-4 in the top of the sixth. Windsor responded yet again with another run, taking the lead for good this time, 5-4.

With the loss to Windsor, Park View ended the regular season as co-champs in the Tri-Rivers District. The finish was good for a #3 seed in the Conference 25 tournament; Park View opened the playoffs on Monday with a 5 p.m. game against the sixth-seeded Southampton.
