The Haymarket Senators scored 2 in the second inning and never looked back Friday night, defeating the Rockbridge Rapids 5-2.
Down 5-1 in the bottom of the ninth, the Rapids were able to string together three hits. Aided by an error by Senator second baseman Joe Woodward, the Rapids were able to load the bases with two outs. Second baseman Chandler Smetana hit a single through the left side to bring the score to 5-2.
With the bases still loaded Senator pitcher Chris Acker was able to get designated hitter Cody Dolan to ground out to the shortstop to end the game.
The Rockbridge Rapids fall to 14-12 on the season and remain in third place in the South Division. Tonight they travel to Front Royal for a 7 pm contest.
