Halifax National minors fall short in district tournament / July 01, 2019
The Halifax National Dixie Touth minor league all stars finished as the district tournament runner-ups to South Hill recently.

Game 1: Halifax National victory over Halifax American 8-0

HN enjoyed a quality mound shutout effort on the mound. Griffin Bryant threw 75 pitches with eight strikeouts in four innings, and Kaden McClelland had 31 pitches.

Caden Milam delivered key offense in the third inning to open up the scoring. HN had a bases clearing three RBI double by Cam Parkman in the fifth to close the door.

HN had two hits from Griffin Bryant and one from Calvin Smith.

Game 2: Halifax National victory over South Hill 16-6 in five inning rout

Hits from Colton Milam and an RBI double by Cam Parkman opened scoring in the first.

HN had a seven-run second inning with hits by Kaden McClelland, Caden Milam, Nathan Irby, Griffin Bryant, and Cam Chapell.

Colton Milam had five strikeouts in first two innings (62 pitches) with a combined pitching effort from Kaden McClelland (40 pitches) and Layne Satterfield (12 pitches) to seal the deal.

HN capitalized on very productive nights on offense from Griffin Bryant (2-4), Cam Chapell (3-4), Colton Milam (3-4), Cam Parkman (2-3), Kaden McClelland (3-3).

Game 3: Halifax National victory over Halifax American 9-5

HN capitalized on a two-RBI hit by Colton Milam in the first inning, along with hits from Cam Parkman and Caden McClelland that sparked a four-run first inning.

Americans came back to tie the game up in the fifth at 5-5.

A two-run triple by Colton Milam in the sixth and stellar from Layne Satterfield in the bottom of the sixth proved decisive. Satterfield struck out two to close the deal.

HN had very solid pitching again from Griffin Bryant (61 pitches), Kaden McClelland (39 pitches) and Layne Satterfield (20 pitches).

Game 4: Halifax National loses to South Hill, 6-5

Colton Milam struggled pitching in the first and allowed South Hill to jump out to a four-run lead. Layne Satterfield was brought in for relief and was dominant with eight strikeouts. He only allowed two runs in four innings of work.

Layne Satterfield opened the second inning with a hit and eventually scored. Nathan Irby started the third inning with a hit and scored on a RBI single by Griffin Bryant.

Colton Milam (scored), Cam Parkman (scored), Brycen Bowen, and Kaden McClelland all had hits in a big 4th inning that tied score up midway through 4th. South Hill added the dagger in the fifth.

With the heart of the lineup coming in the sixth, Colton Milam hits a hard ground ball to short stop for a fielders’ choice at the plate. Cam Parkman pops out to shortstop to end the game.

Game 6: Halifax National loses to South Hill 2-1

HC struggled, and could only muster one run off three hits throughout the game.

Colton Milam had a single in first, Cam Parkman had a single in the fifth, and Kaden McClelland had a single in the fifth to provide the only hits and run of the game.

Griffin Bryant threw a great game and finished with allowing one run in 77 pitches with seven strikeouts.

Kaden McClelland came on in relief and pitched great to only allow one run in the bottom of the fifth.

South Hill’s Parrish pitched a great game only needing 70 pitches in a three hit, one run game.

Manager Josh Milam did not take the bats out of the hands of his hitters and allowed the offense to stay aggressive, believing the hits would eventually find holes. That did not happen. There were nine one pitch putouts throughout game. He will take this loss on his shoulders, as looking back he should have forced his kids to take a more conservative approach at the plate, taking until each batter sees a strike, and working from there; that would have forced the South Hill team into a pitching change that could have made the difference in the game.
