When the first eight batters in the nine-man rotation draw walks at the plate, one knows it’s going to be a long day for both teams. Such was the case in South Hill Monday as the Park View Dragons blew out Franklin 30-0.

The Dragons had 13 runs in the first, one in the second, 10 in the third, and six runs in the fifth to end the game.

Stefan Wolfe posted five runs in the win. Hunter Kendrick, David Cleaton, and Jeb Redman, had four runs each in the game. George Elam, Joshua Hadley and Brandon Lewis had three runs apiece. JW Murray and Joshua Quinn scored two runs each.

Park View had 24 RBIs in the game, Cleaton leading the pack with eight of those. Three of Cleaton’s RBIs came off of a triple, three more came off of a fifth inning homerun shot to center-right field.

Of the 13 first inning runs three players had hits. Murray knocked out a triple; Hadley and Redman had singles in the first.

Cleaton had a RBI double in the second. He plated Lewis who banged out a single to get on base.

Park View had seven hits in the third. Cleaton hit a triple. Elam, Redman, Wolfe, Hadley each had singles, with Wolfe and Hadley slapping two each.

Hendrick had a single in the fourth inning but was left on base.

Damien Taylor hit a single in the fifth along with Cleaton’s base clearing homer.

Park View drew 18 walks in the game and had one batter hit by a pitch. Quinn took the win from the mound.

The Dragons have a busy week. After a Tuesday game with Southampton in South Hill, the boys are at home again on Thursday versus Surry County.

The week ends on Saturday when the team travels to Windsor.
