Tale of two Indians as Barons face Powhatan,  Southampton last week / April 21, 2010
The Bluestone varsity baseball team scored a convincing 6-1 win over Southampton last Tuesday, but the Barons also found themselves on the wrong end of the scoreboard last week as they lost at Powhatan 17-2 on Thursday.

Playing Southampton at home, the Barons got a superb outing on the mound from Brandon Coleman, who allowed only five hits and struck out nine in a one-run performance. Southampton’s lone run came in the fourth inning after a bout with wildness by Coleman, but with a 5-1 lead he settled down and experienced little trouble the rest of the way.

The offense provided all the support Coleman would need in the third, when the Barons plated five runs. Ceonte House got the rally started with a single, and he came home on a double by Tyler Griles. Griles scored the next Bluestone run, coming around on a single by L.J. Barnett. Jake Moore then came up to bat and drove the ball deep into the outfield to bring in Barnett, and Moore scored on a hit by Coleman.

Amotio Smith recorded the final RBI of the frame with a ringing double to bring home Coleman, and just like that the Barons led 5-0.

Bluestone got its final run in the sixth inning when Barnett drove in Dmitri Bullock on a long double.

The Indians of Southampton were one thing, the Indians of Powhatan quite another. Powhatan thumped Bluestone 17-2 on Thursday as Sam Scherzer turned in an eight-strikout complete game for the Indians.

The Barons were limited to six hits and got their only two runs in the third inning, pulling to within two runs, 4-2. But Powhatan scored six runs in the bottom half of the inning and seven more runs in their next two turns at bat, making the score 17-2 when the game was cut short under the mercy rule.
