The Bethlehem Christian Academy baseball team got back on the winning side Monday with an 11-1 Region 1-A win against visiting Curtis Baptist.
The victory improved BCA to 3-0 against region foes and was the eighth win overall for the Knights. Senior Jared Martin pitched another strong contest allowing just two hits through five innings.
BCA was without the services of four starters due to disciplinary reasons.
“It gave our younger players a chance to get some experience and step in and help us earn an important region win,” Knights coach Nick Pou said. “Every region win means a great deal. We were glad to earn the win.”
Offensively in Monday’s contest, Luke Allen was 3-for-4 while Ramon Rivera was 2-for-4.
Dating back to last season, BCA has not lost a region baseball contest.
Monday’s win was also needed from a mental standpoint as the Knights had fallen to Hilton Head (S.C.) High School 11-1 Saturday and 7-2 to Frederica Academy earlier in the week.
BCA was without several players in those contests as well.
The Knights will host Class AAA Loganville Christian Academy Monday at 4:30 p.m. before a return contest with Curtis Baptist Tuesday on the road, also at 4:30 p.m.
