The Middlesex High varsity baseball team will host West Point at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 10, at the Deltaville Ballpark. It will be the Chargers’ final game before spring break.

In recent action, on April 3 the Chargers lost 10-4 to Lancaster in the Lancaster Invitational Tournament. The game was tied 4-4 going into the sixth inning when the Red Devils exploded for six runs.

MHS scored a run in the first inning when Kyle Shelton walked and scored on a Kyle Lawson double.

The Chargers added their other three runs in the fifth inning on singles by Alex Fitchett and Shelton, walks to Lawson, Austin Cooper and Chris Blake, and a LHS passed ball.

Fitchett started on the mound for MHS and gave up three unearned runs in three innings. “Alex pitched a solid game,” said MHS coach Timmy Blake.

Mason Phillips and Trey Blankenship also pitched for MHS, and Philips was tagged with the loss.

Cooper and Phillips each added a single for the Chargers and Blake walked three times.

On April 5, the Chargers lost 10-0 to Northumberland in five innings.

“Northumberland and Rappahan-nock have two of the better all-around teams in the region,” said Coach Blake.

Shelton’s single was the only hit for Middlesex. Shelton and Blake pitched for the Chargers.
