Rock­dale, Post 77 knocked out

The Covington News - - Sports -

Rock­dale Post 77 opened its elim­i­na­tion game against Fort Pierce, Fla., Post 358 in the South­east Re­gional on Fri­day on a roll.

Af­ter an out to start the game, Rock­dale loaded the bases and Jake Wright ripped a 2-run dou­ble off of Post 358 start­ing righthanded pitcher Richard Har­rell, leav­ing run­ners on sec­ond and third. Then the rains came. Two sep­a­rate storms caused a de­lay of al­most 2 ½ hours, and when the game fi­nally re­sumed, Post 77 out of Cony­ers, didn’t have the same hop in its step.

With left-han­der Tim Far­rell on the game once it restarted, Fort Pierce took con­trol of the game and went on to an 8-5 vic­tory at Ri­ley Park. It im­proved to 24-11 on the sea­son and will take on ei­ther South Carolina state cham­pion Florence Post 1 or Vir­ginia
