Lapel baseball picks off Eastern Hancock


CHARLOTTESVILLE — The Lapel Bulldogs took advantage of Eastern Hancock miscues to hand the Royals a 5-3 loss Monday, April 17.

Sophomore Seth Baugh started for the Bulldogs and held Eastern Hancock (5-4) in check through the first four innings, but RBI from Devin Denny and A.J. Muegge helped the Royals score three times in the fifth.

Frazier pitched the final two innings, allowing just one hit to pick up the save. Baugh struck out nine and walked none during his five innings.

Senior John Sherwood added two hits for the Bulldogs.
