Heading into the bottom of the fourth inning of Harriman’s game with Coalfield, it appeared the game was heading toward a fantastic finish as the game was tied 2-2. But Harriman’s next two trips to the plate led to 11 straight runs as the Blue Devils rolled to a 13-2 victory.
Harriman’s first two runs came in the bottom of the first inning as Grant Jenkins and Chris Works both had singles and scored runs. Chase Randolph had an RBI in the frame.
With the score tied at 2-2, Harriman used a pair of Coalfield errors to spark a five-run fifth inning.
Dillon Reynolds reached on an error to start the inning and he scored when Chase Hamby reached on an error. Hunter Jenkins and Alex Wampler followed with singles before Grant Jenkins delivered a two-run triple. Works drove in the last run of the inning with a ground out.
The Blue Devils ended the game early with six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning.
Those six runs came on just one hit as Brantley Diggs, Reynolds, Tucker Goldston, Hamby, Hunter Jenkins and Wampler all walked and scored runs in the frame. Grant Jenkins drove in a run after being hit by a pitch and Works drove in two runs for Harriman with a single that ended the game.
Works (2-4, 3 RBIs, 1 run) and Grant Jenkins (3-3, 1 3B, 3 RBIs, 2 runs) had multiple hits on the day for Harriman.
Works also picked up the victory on the mound as he pitched all five innings, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk. Works had 11 strikeouts.
The Blue Devils and Jackets will meet again Thursday at Coalfield.
