The Park View baseball team is well positioned going into the postseason after racking up four straight road wins to finish the regular season in dominating fashion.

On May 6, Park View(19-1 on the season) traveled to Courtland to face the Southampton Indians (then 11-4) in a key Tri-Rivers District matchup. The Dragons powered past the Indians in a six-inning mercy rule victory, 10-0.

The following evening the Dragons hit the road to face the Sussex Central Tigers and to put it mildly, the Dragons simply overwhelmed the Tigers in a 26-0 mercy rule win in five innings.

The Dragons finished up their road swing with a trip to Franklin to face the Broncos for a doubleheader on Thursday, and once again Park View put on a baseball clinic, beating the Broncos 23-0 in game one and 13-0 in the nightcap.

PV 10, Southampon 0

In the Southampton-PV matchup on Monday, the Indians were looking to upset the first-place Dragons to solidify their hold on second place in the district. Dragons Coach Mike Barmoy, anxious to see his squad tested prior to postseason play, went with ace Justyn Hudson on the mound.

The junior right-hander didn’t disappoint, going the distance for a three-hit shutout. The PV hurler pitched six innings and struck out eight, walking just one and allowing a trio of hits for the win. Hudson also went 2 for 4 at the plate with four RBIs to help secure the win.

Collectively, the Dragons were 9 for 31 at the plate with four singles and five doubles. Along with Hudson’s four ribbies, Jefferson Barmoy had two RBIs with a single and a double. Cameron Sheets went 2 for 4 with an RBI and scored twice, Brandon Rolfe went 1 for 3 with a ribbie and two runs, and Cameron Shook with an RBI single and Jaison Dugger with an RBI single contributed as well.



Dragons Crush 
Sussex Central, 26-0

The next leg of the Dragon road trip took them north to visit the Tigers of Sussex Central High. The Park View squad decimated the Tigers, scoring 10 runs in the first inning en route to a 26-0 shellacking of the SCHS boys.

On the mound for Park View, Cameron Shook got the start and pitched three solid innings, striking out three and allowing a single hit and issuing a lone walk. Senior Trevor Tanner took over in the bottom of the fourth, allowed two hits and struck out to as the duo combined for the shutout victory.

Offensively, the Dragons went an amazing 16 of 36 at the plate with 11 singles, four doubles and a triple. The Dragons were led by Mason Mills who went 3 for 5 with four RBIs on two singles and a double. Other notables included three-RBI performances by Jarrett Hamby, C. Sheets, T. Tanner, J. Clary and E. Stanley. Dragon outfielder Jaison Dugger rapped an RBI triple in the first inning as part of the 10 runs scored by Park View in the frame.



Dragons sweep Broncos in doubleheader

The Park View Dragons finished up the regular season Thursday at Franklin County High with a doubleheader against the Broncos. The Broncos, a dismal 2-11 coming into the contest, were simply no match for the powerful Dragons and Park View took both games by mercy rule, winning 26-0 in the opener and 13-0 in the nightcap.

Senior Jefferson Barmoy got the start on the mound for PV in game one, pitched three innings, struck out five, allowed one hit and issued one walk. Cameron Shook took over in the fourth and struck out three and allowed a single hit.

Offensively the Dragons were led by big Cameron Sheets who went 3 for 3 with four ribbies. Trevor Tanner was 3 for 4 with three RBIs followed by Jefferson Barmoy, who was 2 for 4 with four ribbies. Jaison Dugger was 2 for 4 with a trio of RBIs and six Dragons had single hit performances: Hudson, Hamby, Moss, Clary Rolfe and Jackson Smiley (called up from the jayvees) .

In the nightcap the Dragons went 11 for 30 as the highlight of the game came early when catcher Brandon Rolfe ripped a 2-1 count line drive to left field for an inside the park homer, his first of the season.

Other plate performances included J. Dugger, 3 for 4, J. Barmoy, 2 for 4, C. Sheets, 2 for 4, and J. Hamby, J. Clary and M. Mills with one hit performances.

With the four consecutive victories, the Dragons finished the regular season 19-1 overall, 14-0 in the Tri-Rivers District, having won an amazing nine games via mercy rule. The Dragons will begin postseason play on Thursday, May 16 by hosting Southampton for the Tri-Rivers District championship.

Regardless of the outcome of that game, the Dragons will host an opening round game of the VHSL East Region 3A Championship tourney at PVHS on Thursday, May 23 with their opponent to be determined.
