If Monday afternoon’s game is any indication, the Bethlehem Christian Academy baseball team is primed for another quality season.
The Knights (2-1) overall smashed visiting Piedmont Academy 16-3 in six innings, benefiting from four homeruns. BCA avenged a 3-2 loss to the Cougars, the two-time defending GISA Class AA state champions, from the 2016 season opener.
“Overall, it was a good offensive game,” said Knights coach Matt Nicks. “We had more than 80 percent of our plate appearances be quality at bats. When we have that high of a percentage, more than likely we are going to come out on top. I was very pleased with how our players competed. Piedmont is a great team and program so it is always nice to come away with a win when playing them.”
BCA pounded out 13 hits, including four doubles and four homers. Brad Toxen had another strong performance going 3-for-4 and driving in five runs, including a walk-off grand slam which sealed the win.
