 April 12--The Chiefs travelled to Dublin Thursday, April 11 to take on West Laurens Middle School. As expected it was a good game with the Chiefs playing their best game of the season resulting in a 5-1 win. Hagen Brantley was on the mound for the Chiefs and pitched his best game of the season. He scattered four hits over seven innings while striking out 15 batters. Walker Moncus led the offense going 3-4 and driving in 2 runs. Dawson Lumley and Andrew Norfleet were each 1-2 batting and scored 2 runs each.

West Laurens scored one run in the bottom of the first but would not score another run in the game. The Chiefs scored one run in the top of the third to tie the game at 1-1 on a two out double by Moncus driving in Norfleet who had led the inning off with a single. In the bottom of the third West Laurens threatened to take the lead back as they got a lead-off triple but Brantley struck out the next three batters to strand that runner leaving the game tied after three innings.

In the top of the fifth Lumley led off with an infield single and when Norfleet bunted to get him to second the catcher threw the ball away at first allowing the runners to move up to second and third with no outs. After a ground out to first could not move the runners Tucker McDonald got an RBI sacrifice fly to right field scoring Lumley and Moncus followed with a two out RBI single to score Norfleet putting the Chiefs up 3-1. After holding West Laurens in the bottom of the fifth inning the Chiefs went right back to work in the top of the sixth as Carson Ricks and Lumley got back to back walks with one out. After Norfleet’s bunt moved the runners over to second and third Kaleb Bennett followed with a two out two RBI single putting the Chiefs up 5-1.

West Laurens went 3 up 3 down in the bottom of the sixth. The Chiefs did not score in the top of the seventh and after striking out the first two batters in the bottom of the seventh it looked like an easy win for the Chiefs but an error and two walks brought the tying run to the plate. Brantley slammed the door with his 15th strike out to end the game and give the Chiefs a big 5-1 win.
