Brookwood had a miscue in the first inning of Thursday’s tilt with Valwood, then recovered to win, 7-1; giving the Warriors a season sweep of the Valiants.
Brookwood had accounted for 31 errors and 50-plus walks through 11 games this season heading into Thursday’s tilt, but corrected the blunders and played fundamentally sound, coach Ken Johnson said.
“I told them that the only persons that able to change that were them,” he said. “When we start making mistakes, it gets contagious like a disease.”
Ace Jordan Bradshaw tossed another gem, allowing just three hits and no walks while throwing seven strikeouts.
Bradley Clark and Cale Deese each blasted solo homeruns and a pair of base hits.
Scott Saunders had two RBIs, Braxton Jones had an RBI single, and Tyler Thompson had a pair of hits as well.
“They work very hard and know what it takes,” Johnson said. They just had to get back to playing basic baseball.”
Thursday’s win gave the Warriors a season sweep over Valwood, a team that will become a regional foe next year.
Next up for Brookwood (7-4, 0-2) is a trek to Tuscaloosa, Ala., where it will play three games in five days, including a doubleheader against Tuscaloosa Academy, the No. 1 private school in the state.
