Redmen outscore Panthers in OVC
CHESAPEAKE — It was a case of doing a little extra.
Rock Hill and Chesapeake combined for 14 extra base hits as the Redmen outscored the Panthers 16-8 Wednesday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.
“Both teams hit the ball well. We just out-hit them and outscored them,” said Rock Hill coach Barry Litteral. “We took advantage of their mistakes and scored.”
Devin Darby was 2-3 with a double and a home run to trigger Rock Hill’s 19-hit attack. Matt Jenkins was 3-5 with two doubles while Josh Malone, Jeremy Blagg and Shane Russell all had a double. Malone also had a triple as he went 3-5.
Chesapeake had six doubles among their 12 hits as Les Counts, Shane Pelfrey, Gabe Freyre, Colton Lindsey, Jake Lewis and Jimmy Conrad all connected on extra base hits.
