Two Wins For RTCA Crusaders
The Robert Toombs Christian Academy Crusaders baseball team took on Bulloch Academy last week and then faced off with Edmund Burke on Monday of this week.
Senior Cam Williams was dominant on the mound going all seven innings striking out 12 while only walking 2. Holding Bulloch scoreless through six before giving up three runs late.
The Crusaders scored two runs in the first inning with back-to-back hits by Karson Evans, Tripp Durden and Dawson Pinkard followed by an RBI by Williams. RTCA added a run in the second inning and then Williams hit a home run in the third to give RTCA a 4-0 lead.
The Crusaders scored twice more in the sixth inning before giving up three runs in the top of the seventh. But RTCA took the win, 6-3 over Bulloch.
Head Coach Brian Fitzgerald said, “Cam was much better today with his command and was able to find his breaking ball keeping Bulloch pretty much at bay on the day, and we had a great start offensively in the 1st inning. Again, we left to many runners in scoring position tonight and need to work on situational hitting. We’re real good at the top but struggling at the bottom, need some more consistency throughout.”
