Moorefield stings Clay-Battelle 10-2 as series heads to decisive Game 3

MOOREFIELD — A day after striking out 18 times in a 2-1 loss at Clay-Battelle, Moorefield collected 14 hits in a 10-2, six-inning win over the Cee-Bees on Thursday night. The Class A Region II best-of-three series returns to Blacksville for the decisive game at 5 p.m. Friday.
The Yellow Jackets (21-10) used a mix of small ball and power to jump out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning. Remi Hinkle’s grand slam was set up by a pair of bunt singles. Moorefield recorded five bunt singles, three successful sacrifices and forced a pair of Cee-Bees throwing errors on bunt plays.
“We usually bunt fairly well,” Moorefield coach Tammie Ayers said. “I’ve got a couple that don’t like to bunt but they can when it is crunch time.”
