Warriors no match for Rockwood on diamond

-A A +A
By Goose Lindsay

The Rockwood Tigers reached the double digit plateau for runs scored for the 12th time this season Friday night and the result was a dominating 16-4 victory over visiting Bledsoe County.
Friday’s win also marked the 10th time this season that Rockwood (11-6) has won a game by 10 runs or more.
Bledsoe County did give the Tigers a battle for an inning, as both teams scored two runs, but Rockwood outscored the Warriors 14-1 over the next two innings to put the game away.
Rockwood’s first inning runs came with Riley Clem driving in Hunter Grant with a single then Tavin Napier drove in Clem with a single that tied the score at 2-2.
The Tigers started to pull away with six runs in the bottom of the second inning.
Jordan Breazeale, Christian Domon, Grant, Jared Breazeale, Napier and Hayden Freels all scored runs in the frame with Hunter Robbins driving in a pair of runs in the frame.
Bledsoe County scored a run in the top of the third inning to pull within 8-3, but that would not spark a great Warrior rally as Rockwood exploded for eight runs in the bottom of the frame to make the score 16-3.
A three-run triple from Napier and a two-run double off the bat of Domon highlighted an inning that would see Cofer, Domon, Grant, Clem, Jared Breazeale, Napier and Freels crossing the plate. Cofer scored twice in the inning.
Grant (3-4, 1 2B, 2 RBIs, 3 runs), Napier (2-3, 1 3B, 5 RBIs, 1 run) and Domon (2-3, 1 2B, 2 RBIs, 2 runs) all had multiple hits for Rockwood in the win.
Justin Domon was credited with the in on the mound while Caleb Wampler picked up the save.
