ROCKVILLE — The visiting Bethesda-Chevy Chase Barons varsity baseball team trailed by one in the top of the seventh inning; they were down to their final out. The Rockville Rams, who had dominant pitching the whole game, possessed all the momentum.
B-CC shortstop Drew Packs came up to the plate, and on the first pitch of the at-bat, ripped a hard-hit groundball down the third baseline. Zach Alfonso burst off second base, flew around third, and came home to score standing up, tying the game.
The Barons flipped the momentum of their pitchers’ duel against the Rams in the top of the seventh, and B-CC went on to win the game in the ninth inning, 2-1 over Rockville.
“I just put it where they weren’t. My approach didn’t change at all; I was just trying to hit it hard,” B-CC shortstop Drew Packs said.
