The Bleckley offense had been hot going to Firday's regular season finale versus West Laurens scoring a combined 33 runs in their previous two games. Against the Raiders, BC struggled and was swept in both games of a doubleheader in Cochran.
Caleb Slaughter's first inning home run was the only run in a 2-1 game one loss. BCHS left the bases loaded with two outs in the fifth inning. Zac Evans had two of the team's four hits, going 2 for 2.
Despite seven walks from Raider pitching in game two, the offense had just two hits in a 6-1 loss. Two bases loaded, two outs, opportunities were wasted. Bryant Trice was 2 for 3 with a double and triple.
BCHS hosts Toombs County, the fourth seed from 2-AA, in round one of the state playoffs May 2. Game one starts at 4 pm with game two to follow approximately 30 minutes later.
