The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (0-1) hit the diamond for the first time against regular season competition on Tuesday afternoon. Hosting Heritage Academy, the Patriots were able to put up seven unearned runs in a 10-0 defeat of the Raiders.
“We finished the game better than we started,” Bratton said. “The first inning was positive. The second inning, they gave us opportunities to make plays, and we didn’t. I saw a little more enthusiasm than I saw Friday night, during the pre-season game. We finished stronger at the end than we started out.”
