For a while Monday, smiles and laughter dotted the field on Senior Day at Charles Henderson. However, late in the game, the smiles left and the Trojans got down to business.
Charles Henderson scored three runs in the fifth inning and six in the sixth to pick up 10-0 win over 1A Brantley to close the regular season.
A pair of sacrifice flies in the fifth gave Charles Henderson a 3-0 lead, and Chase Smartt would scamper home on a throwing error by the Bulldog catcher as Smartt was attempting to take third on a steal.
The Trojans picked up four singles, and a three-RBI double from Austin Ingram, to score six runs in the sixth and end the game early.
Senior Hunter Baggett led Charles Henderson at the plate, going 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored. Ingram went 1-for-2 with four RBIs, including the three-run double.
Senior Blake Craft made the most of senior day.
He threw five innings on the mound, striking out two and surrendering only two hits.
Cole Wilson earned the save.
Charles Henderson will host St. James in the first round of the Alabama High School Athletic Association playoffs on Friday. The doubleheader is set for a 4:30 P.m. first pitch at Frazier Field at Hogan’s Hole.
