After a couple of close losses,
Crossroads baseball team got back in the win column Tuesday with a 3-2 win
against Viewpoint. Crossroads took the lead in the in the bottom of the first
inning, jumping out to a 1-0 lead.
Viewpoint answered with a two-run
third inning. Crossroads scored the tying and winning runs in the bottom half
of the fifth inning to end a three-game losing streak. The Roadrunners were 3-1
before embarking on the three-game skid.
It’s not like the Roadrunners haven’t played
good enough to win those prior three games. Crossroads dropped a 10-8 decision
to New Community Jewish High School, fell 7-6 to Paraclete, and loss 3-0 to
Crossroads’ pitcher Lawrence
Gilliam pitched and hit well enough for the Roadrunners against Sierra Canyon
to give his team a shot at winning the game. Gilliam gave up just two hits
through five innings and collected two hits of his own in the defeat.
Crossroads, which has posted a 4-4
overall record before Thursday’s game against Campbell Hall, is 3-1 at home
this season following the April 8 contest against Viewpoint. Crossroads is
currently in third place in the Alpha League, behind second place Campbell Hall
and the league-leading Paraclete, whom they play again April 29 and May 1.
