Hampton, VA- The Big Blues traveled to the Virginia Coast this weekend for what was originally a 4 game set against The Apprentice School. Due to some inclement weather projected, the series was limited to 2 games, with the Builders taking both, 5-2 and 2-1.
In game 1 the Big Blues were all tied at 2 midway through the 6th inning when the Apprentice School broke the tie with a 3 run 6th inning. The Big Blues were not able to produce in the next inning and fell 5-2 overall. Drew D'Angelo had an excellent game at the plate going 3-4 with a run. Logan Wriston produced the other run for BSC, scoring Billy O'Hara on a fielder's choice.
Addison Meeks was on the mound and picked up his 1st loss of the season. Meeks pitched 5 innings, giving up 5 runs on 5 hits. Brandon Wortkoetter came out of the bullpen in relief and pitched a shutout inning with only 13 pitches.
Game 2 was an excellent pitchers duel. There were only 8 hits given out by all the pitchers used in the game. Brandon Chandler started on the mound for BSC and went 6.1 innings, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits. Tanner Muovich came on to try and keep the game tied in the bottom of the 7th inning, just allowing 1 hit but it was costly as the Builders were able to walk off with a 2-1 win.
