The Park View JV’s got off to a good start in the second inning when Brame walked and scored on a RBI single by Walton to knot the score at one.

The Baby Dragons took a 2-1 lead in the third inning when Jobe Sullivan walked and scored on a RBI single by Walton.

Roanoke Rapids tied the score in the fifth inning by taking advantage of a walk and two hits.

Brame went the distance on the hill for the Baby Dragons, scattering three hits and walking only one while striking out four.

Walton led the Park View JV’s with two hits in the game.

The Baby Dragons are 5-2-1 on the season.
