The Flying Flucos baseball team started strong on Friday (April 14) against the Albemarle Patriots, but two three-run innings by Albemarle were the Flucos’ undoing. The Flucos ultimately lost the game 2-6.
In the first inning, the Albemarle lead-off batter lined a ball to short center field and Fluco centerfielder Dashon Carter made a diving, sliding catch to record the first out of the game. It is a rare occurrence for the defensive play of the game to occur on the first at bat of the contest, but that was the case in this game. Fluco pitcher Shaun Holyfield retired the side in order with the help of Carter’s catch and two ground outs.Add a comment
