Patriots Blast Raiders, Keep Pace for First

Pinecrest 14, Richmond County 4 (6 innings)

– The Richmond Senior baseball team was unable to contain Pinecrest on Tuesday evening, giving up 14 runs on 17 hits in the teams’ first of two meetings this week.

Tommy Vinson’s hit in the bottom of the sixth inning, which brought in teammate Seth Caddell, put an end the game and gave Pinecrest the 14-4 victory at home.

Richmond (11-7, 3-4 SEC) saw three pitchers take the mound in the loss. Trey Watkins started the game but was relieved by Josh Griffith in the bottom of the third after giving up six runs on six hits. Drew Ingram would take over for Griffith, who also allowed six hits, in the fifth inning.

Chase Haywood got the Raiders off to a good start in the top of the first inning with a lead-off double. Back-to-back sacrifice hits from Myles Rohleder and Chandler Johnson helped Haywood cross home plate and put Richmond ahead 1-0. READ MORE.

McKay's Walk-Off Lifts Patriots Past Scots

Pinecrest 1, Scotland County 0

– Pinecrest rode the one-hit pitching of Nik Pry and a clutch hit by Trent McKay to a dramatic 1-0 win Friday over visiting Scotland High.

The two Southeastern Conference rivals engaged in a classic pitching duel, with the Patriots’ win fueled by McKay’s two-out single that knocked in Pry with the winning run in the bottom of the seventh.

It was the first time that McKay had produced a walk-off game-winner for the Patriots and the fact that it came against the Fighting Scots was even sweeter. The junior first baseman grew up in Scotland County before moving to Moore County several years ago.

“It felt awesome,” said McKay of his game-winner. “I was just trying to put something into play. That made it all the more special (getting it against Scotland). It was a big conference win. It feels good to beat them a little bit more than others.” READ MORE.
