Bainbridge goes 2-for-2 against Crusaders | SLIDESHOW

The Bainbridge High varsity baseball team defeated the Eastside Catholic Crusaders 14-9 Friday, April 11.

Leading 12-1 in the fourth inning, Bainbridge seemed to have things locked up pretty tight, and so they decided to mix things up on the mound.

The slight Spartan shift may have been what the Crusaders needed, or maybe it was just a lucky streak at the plate. Whatever the reason, with Bainbridge's own Tino Peleti debuting on the mound, the visitors managed a flurry of scoring activity and brought the board to 12-9 by the end of the fifth.

It was an uneasy moment for BHS fans, to be sure, but not enough to stave off the tide of defeat that would stifle the Crusaders.

In their final at bat, the Spartans quickly took things back in hand and ended the game well ahead.

Head Coach David Smart said that, despite some areas in need of improvement, the team was playing very well and morale was high.

"Winning's fun," he said of Friday.  "Wining's good. We definitely got things we can work on from this game, but it's been a good week. Three games, three wins. [We] couldn't have done better than that."

Friday was the second victory for the Spartans over Eastside in one week, having bested them 6-1 on the road just a day before.
