Bucs lose first region game to Brentwood

The Briarwood Diamond Buccaneers suffered their first region loss to Brentwood School last Thursday and then had a rematch on Monday cancelled because of rain.

Now 5-1 in GISA Region 1AA play and 7-2 overall, the loss drops the Diamond Bucs into second place in the region standings.

The Bucs played "far and away" their worst ball of the season in the 12-1 loss to Brentwood last Thursday at Briarwood, according to Coach Charlie May, who said sophomore Joseph Batrous's homerun was the only bright spot in the game.

"We had 12 strike-outs. It was just one of those days," he said. "We're kind of let down, but we're not out of it by any stretch of the imagination. We're going to keep on battling.

"We've faced that kid (the Brentwood pitcher) three years in a row, and we've beaten him," he continued. "I don't think they're 11 runs better than us. We can beat them."

The rainy weather has wreaked havoc with baseball this season, according to Coach May, who said that not only have the Bucs had little time to practice, they've used up what few practice days they've had by rescheduling cancelled games in those few practice slots.
