TRM baseball drops area series to Bayside
The Bayside Academy Admirals rained on the T.R. Miller Tiger baseball team’s parade Saturday at home as they swept the Tigers in an area doubleheader to take the series.
T.R. Miller claimed game one Friday in Daphne 7-2 to improve to 9-2 overall this season and start the year 1-0 in area play.
In games Saturday in Brewton, Bayside took game one 9-4 to even the series and then clinched the series with a 7-1 in game two to drop the Tigers to 9-4 overall and to 1-2 in area play.
“We played really well (Friday) night,” Tiger head coach Jim Hart said. “Kevin (Davis) pitched well and we came out and swung the bats and finished with 14 hits. The thing that we wanted to accomplish, as far as producing runs for him when he is on the mound, and we did that. (Saturday), we let bad innings cost us two ballgames and it happened in both games. Darby (Blacks) struggled a little bit on the mound the first two innings then he found his groove. After that, you can’t ask him to pitch any better than he did. We didn’t swing it very well in either game and consequently, you are not going to win games like that.”
