Brookwood earns second mercy rule win


Brookwood notched its second mercy rule win of the season with a 12-2 rout of Valwood in six innings on Tuesday.

The Warriors churned in five runs in the first two innings, earned a freebie with a bases loaded walk in the fourth and padded another six in the final two innings to walk away early.

“I feel good about the season,” Brookwood coach Ken Johnson said. “The last two years we’ve won more 25 games or more [out of 32], and I feel like we’re going to have another good year.”

The Warriors won Tuesday’s tilt behind ace Jordan Bradshaw, who threw all five innings, gave up just three hits and posted eight strikeouts. Bradshaw, who narrowly earned the loss from the mound on Saturday, also went 3-for-4 from the plate and churned in three RBIs.

“We know he’s a good pitcher,” Johnson said. “At times he gets behind in the count, but other than that, he threw a good strong game tonight.”

Brookwood posted 11 hits in Tuesday’s win, with eight of its nine batters reaching base at least once.

The Warriors are flexing a balanced attack early this season, and look to continue their momentum in Thursday’s tilt with Macclay (Tallahassee, Fla).

“To win baseball games, you need balance,” Johnson said. “We had opportune hits and execution tonight. I liked what we accomplished.”
