The South Laurel Cardinals got what everyone expected from their ace, but so did the Williamsburg Yellow Jackets.

The Cardinals’ Trey Smith gave up one run on one hit in game one of the district doubleheader as his team came away with an 11-1 win.

Williamsburg’s Geoffery Witt pitched his Yellow Jackets to a 5-3 win, proving that the 50th District may be wide open.

According to Brown, it’s anyone’s ball game and if a team hopes to come out on top, they are going to have to be on top of their game.

“If you ask me, any one of these four teams can beat the other three on any night,” Brown said.

“I just feel like whoever is able to get the most from the No. 2 or No. 3 pitcher is going to have the upper hand,” he added. “You really have to come out and play almost perfect baseball if you are going to dominate and right now, none of us are doing that.”

The Cardinals took game one of the pair with ease, scoring six runs in the first two innings, staking Smith to a lead he never let go of.

Williamsburg managed one run in the third inning, but the Cardinals scored two in the fourth and three in the fifth to end the game, earning the 11-1 win.

South Laurel jumped ahead early in the second game as well, but the Yellow Jackets answered with one run in the third, three in the sixth and one more in the fifth for good measure.

South Laurel tried to mount a rally, scoring one run in the sixth, cutting the lead to 5-3 with one inning to play, but fell short in the seventh.
