The junior varsity Barons baseball team moved to 1-1 in James River District play with their 15-1 dismantling of Nottoway on Monday.

The homestanding Barons allowed Nottoway one run at the top of the first before going on a 12-run rampage in the bottom of the frame.

The Cougar jayvees picked up their only run with one player on base and with one out. Hardison had a RBI single to left-field to score D. Lawrence.

After retiring the side, Bluestone’s leadoff batter struck out. Morton came to bat, singled to centerfield and eventually made it to third on steals.

Nathan Hite drew a walk and Da’Troine Shearin singled, sending Morton home. Michael Harris hit an RBI single to plate Hite. David Wilbourne and Daniel Csorba followed with RBI singles. Justin Garbys singled before the Barons got their second out.

At the top of the order, Garrett Allgood plated Wilbourne and Csorba with a nice single and the 6-1 lead. Garbys and Allgood would come around to home plate.

Shearin hit a double to left field sending Morton and Hite home for two more runs. Runs by Shearin and Harris rounded out the first inning for the 12-1 Barons’ lead.

Bluestone added two runs in the second and one in the third for the 15-1 victory.
