CHESAPEAKE — The Rock Hill Redmen didn’t have their “A” game, but their “B” game was able to get the job done.

Despite not playing at the top of their game, the Redmen got past the Chesapeake Panthers 6-4 on Monday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

“We didn’t play well, but it was a win and that’s all that counts,” said Rock Hill coach Barry Litteral. “Jordan Hairston threw the all well and we had some timely hits.”

Rock Hill (7-2, 6-0) did collect 10 hits with Evan Morris going 3-3 with a double and Jonathan Joseph 2-4.

Hairston got the save as Joseph went 5.1 innings to get the win.

Rock Hill took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first. Laden Delawder walked, Joseph reached on an error and Morris had a two-run, two-out double.

Chesapeake tied the game in the bottom of the inning.

Jacob Henson was safe on an error and Joe Bias, Mikey Walters, Brett Curry and Dakota Hutchinson all walked to force in the runs.

Rock Hill came back with two runs in the second to lead 4-2 when Hairston tripled, Morris doubled and Drew McClaskey singled.

The Panthers got within 4-3 in the third.

Bias doubled, Walters beat out an infield hit and Hutchinson grounded out for the RBI.

The Redmen got two runs in the top of the sixth to lead 6-3.

Joseph singled and courtesy runner Sean McFann moved to third on a hit by Morris. Aaron Dalton hit into a force play as the run scored. Dalton moved up on a balk, stole third and scored on a wild pitch.

The Panthers (5-8, 3-3) got a run in the bottom of the sixth when Jacob Eddy singled and Henson doubled.
