The Cov­ing­ton Post 32 A’s trav­eled to Lo­ganville this past week­end to face the Post #233 team and came out on top of a lop­sided 19-3 vic­tory. Gray Ritchey took the mound for the A’s and had a solid out­ing al­low­ing 8 hits and 1 earned run over 6 in­nings of work, while strik­ing out 5 bat­ters and walk­ing just 1 bat­ter.

The Cov­ing­ton squad gar­nered 15 hits in the game with Hank Steele (Mid­dle Ge­or­gia) and Bryce Shupe (ABAC) pac­ing the team with four hits each. Blake Shope (Al­covy) and Josh Fel­lows (GCSU) each col­lected a pair hits while Dal­ton Rea­gin (W. Ge­or­gia), Jor­don Scott (IMG Academy) and Chase Raines (East­side) each added a hit to the of­fen­sive bar­rage.

While the tem­per­a­tures were in the low 90’s, Coach Dal­las com­mented that it would do the team good to play un­der hot con­di­tions in prepa­ra­tion for the up­com­ing State Tour­na­ment on July 23rd.

Rea­gin came on in the sev­enth in­ning to re­lieve Ritchey and close out the game. Rea­gin struck out three bat­ters, walked one and gave up two hits in his one in­ning on the hill.

The Cov­ing­ton Post 32 team faced Cony­ers Post #77 in a stormy af­fair on Tues­day this week. Post 32 climbed back into the game late in the sev­enth in­ning, but the game ended in a tie (8-8).
