W&L rallies to defeat CB Drifters

 

Freshman Drifter pitcher Nick Graves held Washington & Lee to zero runs for five complete innings on Tuesday. However, in the two subsequent innings, the Eagles rallied to defeat Colonial Beach, 7-1. “The W&L loss was one of the toughest losses we’ve ever had to swallow this season,” Drifter varsity head baseball coach Steve Swope said. “We had a good game plan going in, and came within a couple of outs of pulling it off. Now we have to check inside the chest cavity to push on and achieve our goals of reaching the post season.”

Later in the week the Drifters lost another district game to Northumberland, 7-5. The 

Drifters are now must win their remaining games if they have any hope of reaching the playoffs.

Currently, the Eagles are atop the Northern Neck Division with a record of 5-1, 10-3. The Drifters are now 2-4 in the district, and 10-6 overall.

With a one to three game differential separating the four top district teams (W&L, Rappahannock, Essex, Northumberland, Colonial Beach), anything can happen. There are three games left in the regular season. 

On Thursday, Colonial Beach will travel to Essex, while the Eagles are set to land in the hostile confines of Lancaster.

 

Washington & Lee 7 - cb  1

On Tuesday, at Monroe Park fans were treated to a pitchers’ duel, featuring  W&L standout Josh Fones, and rising baseball star, Nick Graves. 

Fones pitched a solid game, limiting the Drifters to one run, one hit, while striking out 13, and walking two batters. 

Graves finished the game with eight strikeouts, four hits, three runs, and four walks. The Drifters finished the game with Gavin Lutz, and Kamron Smith on the mound.

In the bottom of the first inning, with two outs, and a runner on third base, Fones threw a wild pitch that scored Dion Gonzalez, giving the Drifters a 1-0 lead for the next four innings.

In the top of the fifth inning, the Drifters could breathe a sigh of relief. With two outs and the bases loaded with Eagle runners, Graves pitched his way out of the inning by forcing Cameron Taylor into a ground ball.

In the top of the sixth inning, the Eagles took a 3-1 lead, courtesy of a double by D.A. Wilson, a Drifter wild pitch, and RBI single by Carrington Balderson.

In the top of the seventh inning, the Eagles extended their lead to 7-1. 

Taylor started the game with a homerun over centerfield; three batters later, Wilson scored a runner on a double. Dylan Clark scored Grady Boswell on a RBI single. Balderson completed the scoring with a sacrifice ground ball.

 

Northumberland 7 – CB 5

The Drifters watched a 5-3 lead in the fourth inning turn into a two-run loss at the end. Along with executing on defense, Northumberland capitalized on the Drifter errors to earn the win.

Drifter stats: Dion Gonzalez, double, walked, 2 RBIs, scored run; Jason Vickery, single, walked, scored a run; Josh Thomas, 3 singles, 1 RBI; Gavin Lutz, RBI single; Sidney Horton, walked, scored a run; Travis Irvine, double, scored run.
