Dragon jayvees fall to R-H / June 02, 2021

The Park View Jayvee baseball team fell behind early and couldn’t recover Thursday against Randolph Henry, losing 12-10 at PVHS. The game, the third in the series between the two teams, was the rubber match, and the Statesmen got the better of our Dragons winning two of the three games played.

The Statesmen jumped out to an early lead by scoring six runs in the top of the first. Dru Lee, Ben Gibbs, Cade Jordan, Jaylan Gordon, Kevin Eames and Camden Tucker all scampered across home plate for runs in the side.

Park View rallied in the bottom of the first, scoring five runs to stay solidly in contention. Kwondrey Coleman, Jobe Sullivan, Ashton Jackson, Jake Brame and Deandre Watson all scored to keep the game close.

Ashton Jackson got the start on the mound for PV and took the loss.

The Statesmen added a run in the top of the third, four in the fourth and one in the fifth.

B. Gibbs got the start on the mound for R-H and was credited with the win. D. Lee saw action on the mound in relief.

Trailing 11-7 in the bottom of the sixth, Park View rallied for three runs to cut the lead to 11-10. Jobe Sullivan slapped a single to lead off, followed by Ashton Jackson’s RBI double. Jake Brame got aboard and was scored when Isaac Walton reached on an error by the R-H first baseman. Walton stole first and second and was in position to score the tying run but was left stranded.

The Statesmen added an insurance run in the top of the seventh but it wasn’t needed as the Dragons went three up, three down in the final inning to take the loss.

With the loss the Junior Dragons fell to 5-3-1. They were scheduled to travel to Windsor last night.
