South Hill minors stay alive in district play

South Boston News / June 20, 2018

Coming off a 15-10 loss to Halifax America in the second round of the Dixie Youth District 2 Minors tournament, South Hill needed a win to stay alive Monday — and the South Hill All-Stars totally earned the opportunity with a 20-0 thrashing of Brunswick. SH was scheduled to play Game 4 Tuesday in Brunswick.

South Hill was just too powerful for Brunswick, scoring five runs in the first, three in the second, five in the third and closed out the game with a seven-run fourth.

At the top of the first with one down, Jayce Parrish reached base after being hit by a pitch. Lucas Crutchfield was also plunked in the batters box to advance to first.

Khiyon Alston and Adam Jones drew walks. Ashton Moseley hit a double and Maddox Sasser singled. All of the batters scored except for Maddox for the 5-0 score.

SH added three runs in the second inning. Jake Smiley walked, Trevor Lynch singled and Wesson smacked a double. Sullivan singled but was left on base for the 8-0 lead.

In the third, Alston crushed a triple to lead off the inning for South Hill. Jones cracked a double and Moseley singled. Xander Pulley, who started as SH’s pitcher, reached first base on an error.

Parrish added a single and SH put five more runs on the scoreboard to take a 13-0 lead.

In the fourth, SH finished out the game, scoring seven runs. Jones (triple), Moseley (single), Pulley (single), Wesson, Sullivan (walk), Crutchfield (double) and Alston (double) all contributed to the final flourish en route to the 20-0 victory.
