Panthers blank Wingfield
Scotty Bateman provided a dominating performance on the pitcher mound for the Panthers as Brookhaven blanked the Wingfield Falcons 10-0 in Region 6-5A baseball action.
“Scotty pitched a great game,” said BHS coach Randy Spring. “Wingfield has improved a lot over of the season and they refuse to give up. Overall, I was pleased with the guys’ effort. We played really well defensively, had good pitching and hit the ball hard.”
Brookhaven (6-4, 1-0) will be in action Thursday as they host the Loyd Star Hornets in a make up game. Junior Varsity action starts at 5 p.m., followed by the varsity game at 7.
