Brookwood caps 'Bama road trip with doubleheader wins


Coach Ken Johnson said his Brookwood Warriors looked like a completely different team on Saturday.

Brookwood, which blew a 4-1 lead, left 13 runners stranded and accounted for five errors in its 8-5 road loss to Tuscaloosa County (Ala.). on Friday, outscored Tuscaloosa-Christian, 24-1, in a pair of mercy-rule victories on Saturday.

The Warriors had 22 combined hits and no errors while allowing just three hits and the one run.

“Like I said before, we seem to be a contagious team – good and bad,” Johnson said. “When one guy gets an error, then three guys do later in the game. When another guy gets a few base hits, they all seem to click at the plate.”

Brookwood had almost identical offensive outings in the doubleheader. The Warriors scored two runs in each of the first two innings, then had a pair of six-run innings in the middle stages before letting off the gas down the stretch.

“When you don’t make errors and can build a big lead, that makes a difference,” Johnson said.

Pitching was also above-par, Johnson said. Peyton Latmore and Andrew Saunders, who both split time in Friday’s loss, tossed Game 1 and 2, respectively.

Brookwood (10-6, 0-2) resumes region play at home against Tiftarea on Tuesday.
