Bruton snapped a five-game losing streak with its 3-2 road win against Warhill on Tuesday.

The Panthers opened the scoring in the top of the first inning with back-to-back base hits. The second hit went into right field, where the ball was thrown over the head of the Warhill third baseman, allowing both base runners to score.

Warhill answered with a run in the bottom of the third inning, but Bruton scored the eventual game-winning run as Kevin Zamudio tripled in the top of the sixth inning and later scored on a passed ball.

Bruton (3-7) will travel to play Smithfield on Friday, while Warhill (1-9) will try to rebound Friday at home against Lafayette.

Jamestown Extends Win Streak to Seven Games

Jamestown pitcher Kent Klyman struck out 14 batters in six innings as the Eagles cruised past York 10-0 on the road Tuesday.

Holding an early 3-0 lead over York heading into the top of the fourth inning, Jamestown posted four runs to blow the game open.

Garrick Colorado opened the run with an RBI single to center field, which was followed by a two-run double by Josh Nellis. On the next at bat, Michael Schmidt hit an RBI single that drove Nellis home and put the Eagles up 7-0.

After Noah Scruggs added an RBI single in the top of the fifth inning, the Eagles drew back-to-back walks with the bases loaded in the seventh inning to score their final two runs.

Grafton’s Slide Continues with Loss to Smithfield

A pair of Smithfield runs in the bottom of the first inning was enough to give the Packers a 3-1 win against Grafton at home Tuesday afternoon.

Grafton had trouble figuring out Smithfield pitcher Jakob Ryan, who threw a complete game and allowed just three hits.

Trailing Smithfield 2-0, Grafton logged its only run of the game in the top of the fifth inning as Jacob McAllister smacked an RBI double that brought home Ryan McDonald.

The Clippers were unable to generate any more offense, however, as the Packers added another run in the bottom of the sixth inning for good measure.

Grafton (1-8) has now lost five consecutive games and will try to rebound at home against Poquoson on Friday.
