Patriots Hand Raiders First Conference Loss

Pinecrest 4, Richmond County 1

– The Pinecrest baseball team got its revenge Thursday night, defeating Richmond Senior 4-1 and handing the Raiders their first conference loss of the season.

Richmond (17-5, 7-1) — who sneaked past Pinecrest 4-3 Tuesday night — led the Patriots 1-0 in the top of the fourth, but could not get hold on to its lead.

Pinecrest (13-8, 4-4) would go on to score four runs in the last three innings. With the win, the Patriots tentatively break a three-way tie — with Lumberton and Purnell Sweet — and take over the third place spot in the SEC.

Lumberton and Purnell Swett play tonight. READ MORE.

Pinecrest Edged By League Leading Richmond

Richmond County 4, Pinecrest 3

– Nick Honeycutt’s seventh-inning confidence helped the Richmond Senior baseball team escape the Patriots of Pinecrest High Tuesday evening, as he stood tall on the mound and threw his sixth strikeout of the night to end what would have been a major meltdown.

Honeycutt only allowed three hits in the first five innings of Richmond’s 4-3 win over conference foe Pinecrest before giving up four hits and three runs in the sixth inning alone.

Trent McKay — who also pitched, striking out two batters and allowing three runs on four hits — got Pinecrest (12-8, 3-4) on the board first with an RBI double.

A wild pitch from Honeycutt would score another Pinecrest runner and then Ayinde McKnight capped off Pinecrest’s three-run inning with an RBI single. READ MORE.

Pats Build Early Lead, Coast to Win Over Swett

Pinecrest 6, Purnell Swett 1

– Sophomore Nik Pry was 3-for-3 at the plate and twirled a complete game to lead the Pinecrest baseball team to a 6-1 victory over visiting Purnell Swett Friday evening.

In a Southeastern Conference where road victories are hard to come by, the Patriots also received a good pitching performance the night before from Trent McKay in Pembroke but were held to three hits by the Rams’ Lucas Oxendine in a 2-1 loss.

Coach Jeff Hewitt’s squad took an 11-7 overall and 3-3 conference mark into Saturday’s non-league game at Dixon. The Rams dropped to 11-5 and 2-4.

“I thought we did a very good job tonight,” Hewitt said afterward. “This team has bounced back every time we have asked them to. We leave at 10:30 a.m. on a three-and-a-half hour road trip to Dixon tomorrow. This will make it all sweeter.” READ MORE.

Rams Slip By Pinecrest in Key SEC Showdown

Purnell Swett 2, Pinecrest 1

– Behind a late-inning RBI from Ethan Chavis and a complete-game performance from pitcher Lucas Oxendine, the Purnell Swett baseball team claimed a 2-1 win over Pinecrest on Thursday.

Chavis plated the go-ahead run in the sixth inning, lining a single to right field, plating Luke Brooks. Cal Hunt lead off the inning with a single.

Oxendine went the distance on the mound, allowing one run on three hits, striking out six batters. McKinley Strickland and Bladen Strickland led the Rams at the plate with a pair of hits each. Bladen Strickland tied the game at 1-1 in the second inning with an RBI bunt single.

The Rams will travel to Pinecrest tonight for a 7 p.m. rematch. READ MORE.
