Austin Bergeaux led off the bottom of the first for Bleckley with a single. Chance Pittman had an RBI single that followed a throwing error. Those were the only hits and only runs scored by the Royals Thursday night versus West Laurens.
But they would be enough. The Raiders got one run in the second but were denied over the next five innings. Austin Simmons, who came into pitch in the third, worked out of jams including having two on with no out in the sixth. He scattered four hits, five walks over five innings pitched.
BCHS won 2-1. Bergeaux finished 1 for 2. Friday's home game versus Lamar County starts at 5:45 pm.
