In what could be the most lopsided victory in RCBL history, the Bridgewater Reds demolished the Elkton Blue Sox, in seven innings, 28-2 at Stonewall Memorial Park.
Bridgewater accumulated 26 hits on Saturday night, five of them being home runs, and one of those home runs was a grand slam courtesy of Mason Mitchell in part of an eight-run fifth inning. Mitchell finished the night with three hits and six RBIs. Designated hitter Michael Fyvie was 6-for-6 with a double, two home runs, and five RBIs. Jacob Grabeel and Kyle Eagle also hit their first home runs of 2020.
Waring Garber started on the mound for the Reds. The right hander from Roanoke College lasted four innings. He stuck out two, walked two, and gave up four hits, but capitalized off Bridgewater’s offensive onslaught to grab his third win of the season — tied for most in the RCBL so far.
Ironically, Elkton actually scored the first runs of the game in the bottom of the first off of a two-run double by Jack Bourdon. He finished the game with two hits and two RBIs. Second baseman Will Decker was 3-for-4 with a double as well for the Blue Sox, but that’s about all the offense that they could muster up against the Reds’ pitching.
Bridgwater gets back to .500 on the season at 5-5. The Reds will host the Stuarts Draft Diamondbacks at Buck Bowman Park. Elkton falls to 3-7 and will play again on Tuesday, hosting Broadway.

Clover Hill falls to Montezuma 5-3 at Buck Bowman Park. Tyler Bocock went the full nine innings for the Bucks but it wasn't enough to beat the Braves. Tavian Hall hit his second home run of the season for Montezuma.
