One of the reasons that PC was able to take the win was the fact that senior Colby Campbell had a single game DI record 25 tackles during the game…  PC clinched the victory with an interception from Rod Haygood in the final minute of the contest… Tyler Huff finished the game with 21-25, 198 passing yards and 2 touchdowns… Senior Keith Pearson totaled 11 catches for 114 yards and two touchdowns.

Braves: The Braves hosted the Philadelphia Phillies this weekend in their first 3 home games of the season…  For more information on any specific game(s) mentioned below, click on the score at the beginning

  • Friday: Braves 8 – Phillies 1… On Friday the Braves simply outhit the Phillies 11-6 and they played long-ball with their hits… Ronald Acuna Jr hit his third homer of the season a 2-run shot… Ehire Adrianza also had a pinch hit 3-run homer later in the game and Freddie Freeman picked up his second homer of the season a 2-run shot.
  • Saturday: Braves 5 – Phillies 4… Saturday’s game was much closer but the Braves still one by a score of 5-4… Freddie Freeman picked up his third homer of the season a 2-run blast in the first inning… Ehire Adrianza again had a key pinch hit a double in the seventh inning and wound up scoring the winning run for the Braves.
  • Sunday: Phillies 7 – Braves 6… The Phillies avoided the sweep last night by taking a 7-6 win over the Braves… The game was decided in the top of the ninth inning when the Phillies scored the go-ahead run on a close play at the plate where the Phillie runner was called safe and the call stood (not confirmed) after video review… Being a former umpire I hate to argue the call but I believe I saw enough on the video review to overturn it… One thing for sure, if Bobby Cox was still managing the Braves he would have been tossed after that call… Ozzie Albies, Freddie freeman and Ronald Acuna Jr. all had homers in the game… The Braves are now 4-5 on the season and remain at home tonight to start a 4-game series with the Marlins.
