Brookwood accounts for seven errors in region loss

THOMASVILLE —

It was a game that left Brookwood coach Ken Johnson scratching his head.

The Warriors dropped their second consecutive region game in Thursday’s 4-2 defeat to rival Deerfield-Windsor by virtue of seven fielding errors.

It started with what appeared to be a routine pick-off in the first inning, but the first baseman dropped the catch, then overthrew the toss to second, which sent the ball to the outfield wall and the runner home.

Deerfield again capitalized on a Brookwood miscue in the third inning when a runner reached base on a two-out error. A Brookwood outfielder dropped a popout during the next at bat, missed the throw to the infield and allowed the final three runs to score.

Warriors pitcher Jordan Bradshaw notched a solo homerun and Bradley Clark churned in an RBI double, but it wasn’t enough to avenge the defensive blunders early in the game.

“I think the last two games, I would say, have had as poor decision making and fielding on the players part that I’ve seen in a long time,” coach Ken Johnson said. “It was frustrating. We just gave the last two games away.”

Bradshaw, whose seven inning performance consisted of ten strikeouts and three hits, earned the loss from the mound despite allowing no earned runs.

The Warriors will look to regroup this weekend in Florida against two teams – Macclay and Munroe – that they’ve already seen this season. Brookwood (6-3, 0-2) downed the former but lost to the latter in its extra innings home opener.

“It’s not going to get any easier,” Johnson said. “But I still don’t think we’re out of [the region race] at this point. I said from the start that any of the four teams could win it, and I think we’re capable of beating all of them. It’s just a matter of correcting the mistakes we made today.”
