Another freebie: Brookwood walks in game-winner in extras

THOMASVILLE —

Brookwood let another one get away on Saturday.

The Warriors again fell in nine innings to Munroe by walking a batter in. Brookwood lost to Munroe, 4-3 in its home opener on March 8 after walking in two during the third innings, which ultimately proved to be the deciding factor.

This time, the Warriors loaded the bases in the final inning after two base hits and an intentional walk to attempt a force out to no avail.

“It was another game you had to earn,” Brookwood coach Ken Johnson said. “We made some mistakes here and there, and gave them opportunities to score.”

Brookwood jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and extended it to five with a pair of runs in the fourth, which would be the final time the Warriors crossed the plate.

Munroe responded with a score in the fourth, another in the sixth and three in the seventh, which would’ve been the final inning of the game.

The Warriors were also plagued by another defensive damper that included six fielding errors to piggyback their seven on Thursday against Deerfield-Windsor.

Johnson said the miscues stem from a lack of execution.

“What makes it frustrating is I know they can do it. It’s not a lack of ability” he said. “Nobody can change that but them.”

The coach added that he doesn’t intend to make major changes to his defensive scheme, though he plans to focus heavily on defense in practice next week.

Johnson said one of the toughest facets of the loss was the proverbial shadowing of Bradley Clark’s pitching performance. Clark, making his first start this season, threw 87 pitches over 6.1 innings. Johnson paved way for Peyton Latmore, who allowed the tying runs, in the seventh once Clark had exceeded his pitch count. Cale Deese tossed the ninth inning.
