Baseball Falls In Season Opener 13-1 To Bridgewater

Baseball Falls In Season Opener 13-1 To Bridgewater

HAMPTON, VA. – The Apprentice School baseball team opened its 2012 season on Saturday falling 13-1 at War Memorial Stadium to visiting Bridgewater College.

Apprentice School scratched a run across in the sixth inning as Andrew Hooper started with a double down the left field line.  Following a fly out, Chris Perry's single to right field was just far enough to move Hooper to third.  Devorn Lake followed with a force out of Perry which enabled Hooper to score and cut the lead then to 6-1.

Bridgewater answered with six runs in the seventh and one in the eighth to blow the game wide open and take the 13-1 win.

Perry was 2-for-3 to lead an eight-hit attack for the Builders.  Senior Daniel Lutz took the loss throwing 4.2 innings and allowing five hits with three runs.

The Builders hit the field again on Thursday at 3 pm to start the Builder Invitational hosting NCAA Division II Bloomsburg University.
