SportsBoone completes season sweep of Crockett

The Daniel Boone Baseball Blazers’ potent offense once again proved no match for the Pioneers of David Crockett in their second meeting of the season in Jonesborough. The April 10 contest saw the Blazers score 13 runs over the final three innings to complete the season sweep of the rival Pioneers, 15-4.

Starters Jeremy Collins of Crockett and Daniel Cox of Boone each slowed their opponent’s offense through the first three innings, with Crockett scoring just a run in the first and Boone notching a run in both the second and third innings.

But the pitcher’s duel would come to an end in the top of the fourth as the Blazer bats finally got going. Boone pushed six runs across the plate in the inning, and Cox blanked the Pioneers in the home half of the frame.  More...
