CHICKEN HAWKS HOLD OFF HURRICANES

In junior varsity baseball action on Tuesday afternoon at the Kirwin Terrence ballpark, the Charlotte Amalie High School Chicken Hawks showed poise in defeating the Antilles Hurricanes, 6-3.
Chicken Hawks pitcher, Moriba George, struck out eight Hurricanes. George noted that to certain batters, Jake Neely and Preston Harlow, "I had to focus on what location and pitch to make." George only allowed Harlow a soft looping single over the reach of second baseman, Elkin Lloyd. George held the Hurricanes to three scattered hits, one in each of the second, third and sixth innings.
Hurricane pitcher, Neely, pitched well himself. However, his defense let him down. Only one of the six Chicken Hawks runs where earned.
In the first inning, Neely got Chicken Hawks, lead off hitter, Randy Marks to fly out to center field for the first out of the inning. George then reached on an error. The next batter, Sean David stuck out but, the third strike was in the dirt and the Hurricanes catcher threw in away allowing George to score and David to take second. The subsequent batter, Chicken Hawks catcher hit a two run homerun for a 3-0 lead.
Chicken Hawks' only earned run scored in the second inning when with two outs, Marks walked. He then stole second. George singled him home but was left stranded. The Hurricanes scored all of their runs in the top of the second inning. They scored their runs with the help of four walks and one of their three hits, a double by Morgan Erb.
George only granted one other base on balls for the rest of the game as he kept the Hurricane bats silenced.
In the sixth inning, the Hurricanes threatened to make a come back. Michael Feracho reached on an error committed by Lloyd. George struck out both Bo Nichols and Scott Newland. Sean Miller ripped a single into left field that woke George up. "I was just throwing the ball over the plate. He (Miller) hit it so hard I didn't see it." George said. George then got Adam Cook to tap a ball softly to him and threw Cook out to end the game.
