CAHS Takes Interscholastic Athletic Association Season Opener 10-0

April 8, 2008 — Christian Bramble kicked Charlotte Amalie High School's baseball season off in style Tuesday, throwing a five-inning one-hitter on the way to a 10-0 shutout of the Antilles Hurricanes.
The Chickenhawks got on the board in the second off of a double, bringing in a runner from third. The team would score one more time before ending the inning, to take a 2-0 lead. Bramble took the mound and sat the Canes down in order. The Hawks then scored another run in the third off a ground rule double that got stuck in some vines entangled in the centerfield fence, to take a 3-0 lead.
In the Antilles half of the inning, the Canes thought they had the first hit of the game with a line-drive to centerfield. But the CAHS centerfielder fired the ball to first, beating the runner to the bag, and ending the inning. CAHS would have a 5-0 lead going into the top of the fifth, when they exploded for five runs to push their lead to double digits, 10-0.
Antilles managed to get their first hit of the game in the bottom of the fifth, but did not get a run, causing the mercy rule to be invoked, ending the game after five innings. Canes pitcher J'Verne Pickering took the loss for Antilles.
Top hitters for the Hawks were Ashur Amaro, going two-for-two and Troy Richards, going two-for-four.
Baseball action continues Wednesday at Kirwan Terrace Ballpark with a double header starting at 4 p.m., staring off with CAHS taking on Bertha C. Boschulte in the junior varsity division, followed by CAHS and Ivanna Eudora Kean High School in the varsity division.
