Baseball: Pinson Valley 3, Mortimer Jordan 2

(Continued)

PINSON —

Armstrong went 2-for-4 for the day, with an RBI and a run scored. Falkinburg delivered a 1-for-3 outing with a walk and a run scored.

Jordan (13-2) was able to load the bases in the top-half of the seventh with only one out and their cleanup batter at the dish. However, Eckmyre sat down the next two Devils with back-to-back strikeouts looking.

“You have to put the ball in play there. A base hit wins the game,” said Carnes. 

Hodges, Ty Miller and Suchey ­— Jordan’s leadoff through three-hole hitters — went 4-for-8 with three walks. But their remaining six spots in the order combined for a 1-for-18 performance.

The Blue Devils (13-2) are relegated to the fifth-place bracket, and will go to Shades Valley on Thursday.
