UNION — The Union County JV baseball team picked up an 8-5 win over York in Thursday night’s scrimmage. Hunter Bailey got the start from the hill and J.D. Cheek tossed four innings of relief.
The Jackets touched up York’s battery of pitchers, spraying hits in nearly every inning. York rallied to cut Union County’s lead to a single run with an RBI double in the fifth inning, but the base-runner attempted to steal third on a passed ball at home plate and was gunned down for the final out.
The Yellow Jackets tacked on two more runs in the sixth and York had no answers in the seventh.
