Porter’s Chapel Academy baseball season came to an end on Saturday in a 12-3 loss to Benton Academy in game three.
The Eagles first completed game two which was previously suspended due to weather but they managed to pull off the 11-10 win.
In game three, PCA quickly got two runs after a bunt by Laken Bradley and Chase Hearn being hit by a pitch. Benton would soon respond with big hits to tie the game at two by the end of the first.
The game remained tied for both the second and third inning until Zach Ashley got a RBI in the fourth to give PCA a 3-2 lead. Colton Ellis got the game tied at three after a single in the bottom of the fourth.
The game would eventually go downhill for PCA in the fifth inning with Benton racking up six hits and adding nine runs as they went up 12-3.
PCA wouldn’t be able to regain the lead and took the tough loss.
Lawson Selby went 3 for 3 at the plate while Thomas Azlin, Gage Palmer, and Bradley each got one hit.
Although the Eagles’ season is officially over, the young team who are built mostly with sophomores, reached new heights by winning multiple playoff series for the first time in over a decade with a 17-8 record.
PCA is led by second year Head Coach Paul Ashley.
