Baseball Topples SeaWolves 11-4 To Start Homestand

SCORE: Apprentice School 11, Southern Maine CC 4

RECORDS: Apprentice School 14-6, Southern Maine CC 8-7

LOCATION: War Memorial Stadium/Hampton, VA

IN BRIEF: Freshman Brian Belvin drove in four, three on a home run and sophomore Brock Harris broke a school record with four stolen bases, as the Apprentice School opened a week-long homestand with an 11-4 win over Southern Maine CC on Monday night.

ON THE FIELD: The Builders gave up a run in the first inning before putting four across in the home half of the inning.  Walk to Brock Harris and Christian Burton before a single by Chris Aldridge loaded the bases to start the inning.  Belvin followed with a walk to tie the game 1-1.  Lee Rossi drove in one with a sacrifice fly before a pair of unearned runs gave the Builders a 4-1 advantage.

In the second, Harris started the inning with a single and one out later Aldridge drew another walk to set up Belvin.  He took a pitch over the wall in left field to give the Builders a 7-1 advantage.

Rossi drove in one with a double in the fourth and Trevin Wilson followed with an RBI single as the Builders went up 9-1 after four.  They pushed another run across in the sixth as Rossi started the inning with a triple and scored on a wild pitch. 

Apprentice School closed their scoring in the seventh as Cody Norris had a two-out double and scored on a single from Ryan Hendrickson.  The SeaWolves scored a run on a RBI groundout in the eighth and put two more up in the ninth on a sacrifice fly and a single.


  • Junior Ryland Edwards won his third decision of the year with a six inning start allowing seven hits and striking out a career-high 10.  That marked the first time a Builder pitcher had struck out 10 or more in a game since Daniel Lutz struck out 11 against Virginia State nearly three years ago to the day on March 16, 2011.
  • Harris broke the single-game stolen base record with his four swipes on Monday night.  The previous mark was three held by many people.
  • Edwards closed out his start with striking out the final three batters in the sixth inning after a leadoff single to Brendan Horton.
  • Joining Belvin in the two-hit club were Harris (2-for-3 with two runs), Rossi (2-for-3  with 2 RBI) and Wilson (2-for-4).


These teams will close out this part of the homestand by facing off at 5:30 pm on Tuesday at War Memorial Stadium. SMCC (8-7) will face Thomas Nelson CC at 2 pm on Tuesday at the stadium.
