Halifax County Middle School baseball split in Junior Piedmont District action last week.

The Lions cruised past Martinsville, 17-2, in three innings Thursday at home. Mason Hatcher had two hits and an RBI. Tyler Collins delivered two hits. Trey Comer produced a hit and two RBI.

Dakii Chandler had a hit and an RBI. Colin Saunders, Josh Gunn, Kameron Roberts, Leo Bollinger, and Jayke Owen had one hit apiece.

Trey Comer pitched two innings, striking out three with four hits allowed. Leo Bollinger pitched an inning, striking out three.

“It was a solid performance offensively. We had some nice at bats and had a good approach to drive in runs. After a shaky start, we were able to lock down defensively and the pitchers did their part by throwing strikes to let the defense work behind them,” said coach Zach Carter.

Earlier, the Lions lost a tough one to Franklin County, 3-2, in eight innings.

Kamron Turbeville went three-for-three with two doubles and an RBI. Kolby Fisher went two for three.

Colin Saunders had a hit and an RBI. Evan Clark and Christian Midkiff had one hit. Trevor Hazelwood pitched three innings, striking out three, walking four, while giving up an unearned run.

Evan Clark pitched 2 2/3 innings, striking out three, walking one. Clark gave up three hits and one earned run.

Colin Saunders pitched 2/3 of an inning, with one hit allowed.

“It was a tough loss but the team played hard from beginning to end. Both teams played well but we made more mistakes than they did that proved costly. The team plays hard for each other and will bounce back and continue to learn what it takes to win close ball games,” said Carter.
