Giles' Dylan Raymond was 3 for 3 with 3 runs scored including a home run and Trever Dudding was 2 for 4 with 3 rbi's to lead Giles to the win. Giles starting pitcher Tyler Nelson went the distance to get the win scattering 8 hits and striking out 4.
Offensively, BHS was led by Casey Herman and John Hamborsky with 2 hits each.
Blacsksburg Head Coach Jim Shockely said after the game, " Give Giles credit. They played well defensively and got timely hits. We, on the other hand, uncharacteristically had 4 errors left 12 men on base, and had some base running mistakes.. We had the bases loaded in the first and did not score, took a 2-0 lead in the 3rd, loaded the bases again and could not break it open. We are a lot better than we showed today. Our kids are working hard and we will learn from this."
With the loss, the Bruins are now 4-4 on the season. They host Patrick Henry on Thursday for the second time in a week.
