Brookwood splits series with No. 1 team in Alabama

THOMASVILLE —

It was an indifferent afternoon for Brookwood.

The Warriors dropped their first contest to Tuscaloosa Academy, 7-1, despite matching the Knights with seven hits, then recovered to win Game 2, 3-1.

So what was the difference?

“We were able to capitalize with runners in scoring position the second game,” Brookwood coach Ken Johnson said.

The Warriors struck out twice with multiple runners in scoring position and left the bases loaded on inning as well. In total, Brookwood had nine runners stranded in Game 1 on Wednesday.

“That’s just not going to work,” Johnson said.

The loss shadowed an otherwise solid performance from pitcher Jordan Bradshaw, who threw nine strikeouts in seven-innings.

Bradley Clark threw a gem in the finale – a seven-inning, 14 strikeout, two-hits allowed performance – that led the Warriors to a 3-1 win.

“He really did a phenomenal job,” Johnson said. “He’s been getting better and better for us all year.”

Tuscaloosa’s only score wasn’t credited against Clark, either. Brookwood’s catcher muffed the pitch on a strikeout, and a runner was able to score from third.

The Warriors continue their Alabama road trip with a game at Tuscaloosa County on Friday, and Tuscaloosa Christian on Saturday.
