(May 8, 2015) The Stephen Decatur baseball team came up short in Tuesday’s Bayside Conference championship game, falling to the Colonel Richardson Colonels 1-0 at Perdue Stadium in Salisbury.
Colonel Richardson scored the lone run in the top of the fourth inning.
“Each team only had two hits apiece,” Decatur Coach Rich Ferro said. “We had the bases loaded in the first with one out, but could not get a run across. Caleb Johnson, the pitcher from Colonel, mixed up his pitches well and threw a sharp breaking ball.”
Decatur has an 18-2 record going into the post-season.
Regional tournament action is set to kick off today, Friday. The Seahawks were awarded the No. 1 seed in the 3A South Regional bracket and a first-round bye.
They will play the winner of today’s game – No. 4 Huntingtown vs. No. 5 Northeast of Anne Arundel –Monday at 4 p.m. in Berlin.
“Its nice to have the first seed,” Ferro said. “We don’t have to travel on the bus for a long period of time. That helps with pre-game prep. The 3A South Region is tough with many tough teams.”
