Pleasant Grove 6-3 win Gilmer

The Pleasant Grove Hawks baseball team took over sole possession of second place in district Friday with a 6-3 win on the road at Gilmer.

The games didn’t start until 8:10 p.m. because of an issue with the umpires. However, when the game began, the Hawks exploded and Gilmer self destructed.

The Hawks scored 5 runs in the top of the first inning with two hits and 3 Gilmer errors. PG never looked back.

The Hawks starting pitcher Blake Jennings earned the win. Jennings (2-1) pitched 4 and 2/3 innings allowing  3 runs on only 3 hits, striking out 4 and walking four. Nathan Hutcheson pitched the final 2 and 1/3 innings not allowing any runs on  just 1 hit while striking out four.

Pleasant Grove (14-4, 4-1)  was led at the plate by Cason Head who was 1-for-3 with a double and RBI. Brenton Clark, Hayden Koller and Tucker Anderson were each 1-for-3 and JM Long was 1-for-four.

Hawks head coach Riley Fincher said it was a big win on the road.

“Our guys did a great job of handling the delay,” Coach Fincher said.  “Blake Jennings and Nathan Hutcheson pitched great and our guys squared a lot of balls up at the plate.” Fincher said the support from the Hawk fans that traveled to Gilmer was awesome, as always.
