Royals lose season series to Dublin

Royals lose season series to Dublin

Thursday's home game versus Dublin was no ordinary non-region baseball contest at BCHS.  It was military appreciation night.  Active duty and retired military were recognized before the game.  That included former Royal and current Marine, Lance Cpl. Kace Kirkpatrick.  It was also the return of longtime team chaplain Keith Rustin.  He was hospitalized for over two months due to illiness.

The game itself didn't go well for Bleckley.  Zac Evans' seventh inning single accounted for the team's only hit with runners in scoring position in a 10-2 loss.  Numerous scoring opportunities were wasted including a two on, one, out situation in the first.

Thomas Adcock was 2 for 3.  Austin Simmons went 1 for 2.  

Region play resumes Friday at Macon County.  Game time is 5:30 pm.

BCHS trailed at Dublin 4-0 after two innings Thursday.  Dylan Churchwell's grand slam was part of a five-run third. Dublin went ahead in their half, then hit a three-run home run in the fourth to go up four again.  Three in the fifth made it 9-8.  Churchwell led off the sixth with a walk.  Pinch runner Brent Mimbs was at second with one out but left stranded.

The Royals were retired in order in the seventh to end the game.  Churchwell finished 2 for 3 with 4 RBI.  Austin Jones and Landon Anderson were both 1 for 2.  Bleckley plays at Taylor County Friday.  Game time is 5:30 p.m.
