Blue Ridge Outlasts Martinsville

A relatively quiet game had a wild ending as Blue Ridge rallied past Martinsville 10-8 in non-conference boy's baseball action from Farmer City Thursday.


Trailing 1-0 after 4 1/2 innings, the Knights rallied for four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning for a 4-1 lead, but Martinsville answered with a seven-run sixth inning to take the 8-4 lead.


But the Knights weren't going down without a fight and rallied for six runs of their own in the bottom half of the sixth to make the score 10-8 and Kolby Kramer finished the game with a scoreless seventh inning.


Isaiah Dalton finished 3-for-4 with three runs batted in for Blue Ridge. Cole Stephens finished 2-for-4 nad Ben Wallace was 2-for-3. Both recorded doubles. 


Dylan Kelley was 3-for-4 with a double, two runs batted in and scored a run. 


Stephens started strong for the Knights but the wheels started to fall off in the sixth inning, as he went 5 1/3 innings, allowing eight runs, four were earned, and issued seven walks. He struck out four. 


Kremer struck out three in 1 1/3 innings of relief for the win. 


The Knights improve to 2-6 overall. They travel to Decatur LSA for a Lincoln Prairie Conference matchup Saturday.
