BCHS Baseball squad wins three
of three, all conference games

After winning two games by ten runs last week, the Eagles had a close game Friday night. Braxton outscored Doddridge 12-2, beat Gilmer 11-1, and edged Roane 3-2.
Playing on their home field Monday night, Braxton took a 9-0 lead going into the top of the sixth against Doddridge. The Bulldogs scored 2 in the top of the fifth, but the Eagles added three in the bottom of the inning for the short game win. Braxton’s 12 runs came on 13 hits, including Seth Backus’ homerun and double, along with Braden Poling’s double and triple, and Jacob Oates’ double. Rounding out the offensive leaders, Ben Fincham and Peyton Lockard each singled twice.
Fincham started on the mound and went 4.1 innings. He allowed only one run on three hits and a walk while striking out five. In relief, Poling allowed one unearned run while giving up three walks. He struck out two.
Troy McMillion and Cam Long both homered in the Eagles’ victory over Gilmer Wednesday. Long also had a single and a double. Backus hit a double and two singles, and Fincham doubled and singled. In five innings, Poling allowed only two hits and one run. He struck out three while walking two.
Even though they slammed 11 hits, the Eagles managed only three runs against Roane. Leading hitters included Oates with a triple, Long with a double and two singles, and two other hitters---Backus and Tayton Stout, with two singles. Backus, the winning pitcher allowed only two runs, one earned, on two hits and two walks. He struck out seven.
The Eagles had a doubleheader against Calhoun scheduled for Monday night, and tonight they are to host Elkins, the only team who has beaten them. Wednesday they will host the Roane Raiders.
