Prep Baseball: CHS digs deep hole in race for A playoffs

Playing at home with plenty of playoff implications weighing on their shoulders, the Christian Heritage School baseball team needed a win.

Instead, they couldn’t close the deal defensively.

King’s Ridge Christian scored seven of its nine runs with two outs during the game and took a 9-4 win over the Lions. In the race for Class A (private) playoff spots, wins are now at a premium for Christian Heritage.

“We just couldn’t get off the field with two outs,” CHS coach Noah Stokes said. “We let one get away. That was a tough loss and probably affects our spot in the standings. We got three games left, so we will see what happens. It will go a long way to determining if we make the playoffs.”

All four of King’s Ridge’s runs in the second came with two outs, with two more in the third and a solo homer in the seventh.

Ian Robbins was 2-for-3 at the plate, and Jake Stokes was 2-for-4. They were the only players with multiple hits for the Lions (10-9).

• McEachern 6, Dalton 1: Matt Wells and Charlie Martin had Dalton’s only two hits as the Catamounts fell on the road at McEachern in Cobb County.

Wells had the only run scored, coming home on a grounder to short that was booted.

Wells also took the loss on the mound, giving up three earned runs in three innings of work.

Dalton (10-10) plays a crucial series with Heritage-Catoosa this week with the Sub-region 7B-4A No. 2 seed and a home-field advantage in the region playoffs on the line.

• Northwest Whitfield JV 8, Dalton 0: Phillip Hammonds struck out nine batters in five innings of work and gave up a single hit to lead the Bruins over the Cats late Friday night.

Walker Maret went 2-for-2 with a double and pair of RBIs at the plate, while Aaron Ball was 2-for-3 with a two RBIs. Jack Creswell and Austin Morrison also had RBI singles for the Bruins (7-5-1).
