Two lopsided games, two different results for PV / May 05, 2010
The Park View varsity baseball team found itself on opposite ends of the scoreboard last week, traveling to Prince Edward on Thursday where they dominated the Eagles, 10-0, but falling at home last Tuesday to the Powhatan Indians, 11-0.

Against undefeated Powhatan, the Dragons managed to keep the score reasonably close until the sixth inning, when the Indians broke loose for six runs. Powhatan plated three runs in the second inning and solo runs in the fourth and fifth to take a 5-0 lead, but it was the big six run rally that broke the Dragons.

Park View managed only two hits against Indian starter Kurt Van Mess, while Joey Jones took the loss for Park View despite keeping his team in the game through five innings. Ryan Mills pitched the final inning in relief for the Dragons.

Playing two days later against Prince Edward, the Dragons jumped all over the basement-dwelling Eagles with five runs in the first inning and solo runs in the second and fourth frames. Park View brought the game to an early end with three runs in fifth inning to make the score 10-0 and invoke the slaughter rule.

The league action last week left the Dragons with a 6-7 record overall, 5-3 in the Southside District with games this week against Nottoway (last night), Greensville (Thursday) and Southampton (next Tuesday, May 11). With the Dragons battling for a spot in the regional playoffs, they have five district games left after last night. The regular season is scheduled to come to a close on May 20 against Powhatan, with the Southside District tournament to follow on May 26-27.
