Piedmont Academy’s Zach Beggs connected for three home runs and had seven RBI as the Cougars defeated Bethlehem Christian Academy 7-1 Thursday afternoon at Knights Field.
The win avenged an 8-6 loss earlier this season for Piedmont when BCA rallied for a win in 10 innings.
Knights coach Colby May said Thursday’s game, despite the loss, was good for his team.
“We need to play strong opponents,” May said. “Playing a team like this challenges us. We haven’t played a full seven innings the last several times out. We didn’t want to lose, but to play a team like this with a history of success would be beneficial in the playoffs.”
