Trenton Thompson and Tristian Vaughn had the only 2 scored hits on the night for Westwood. Luke Beachboard and Nick Bogle also reached base for Westwood. Skylar Bratcher limited Huntland to 5 hits as he took the loss on the mound. The loss drops Westwood’s record to 1 and 2 on the season.
Westwood is back in action on Tuesday when they play at Moore County. First pitch is set for 5 PM. Monday’s home game with Moore County has been postponed due to damage at their home field at Fred Deadman Park. A makeup date will be announced at a later date.
