Franklin County downed Wewahitchka and Godby last week, their fifth and sixth straight wins.
The Seahawks pounded Wewa 20-6 on March 16, as sophomore Micah McLeod went four innings and gave up four runs on two hits, struck out nine and walked four.
“We were up by 14 in the third,” said coach Aaron Bodin. “I kind of called the dogs off.”
Sophomore Ethan Riley went 4 for 6 with three runs and two RBIs, while sophomore Jan Lowe was 1 for 2, with an RBI and three runs scored; McLeod 1 for 1 with an RBI and three runs scored. Sophomore Christopher Newell was 1 for 3, driving in a run. Sophomore Tonnor Segree went 1 for 3 with an RBI and four runs scored.
Junior Dalyn Sheridan was 2 for 3, with an RBI and two runs scored, while junior Landon Abel was 1 for 4, junior Christian Amison 1 for 3 and junior Chance White 2 for 4 with an RBI.
“We just pounded ‘em everybody on our side got a base hit. We’re starting to hit the ball like I predicted,” said Bodin. “Our pitching and defense has been solid.”
Saturday at Godby the Seahawks won 12-2, in five innings.
Newell threw five innings, gave up two runs one earned, with seven strikeouts, and four walks. “He had a solid performance and we only made one error,” said Bodin. “That’s six in a row.
“We got a lot of confidence, and it’s good to have that confidence,” he said. “This is a building process.”
“I’m sure we’ll hit a lull again but a lot of positives are happening,” said Bodin. “The kids are starting to know that it’s possible. We have the potential to be a really good team.”
Bodin said with the team up 9-2 in the fourth, “I heard in the dugout we need three more runs to finish it.’ I thought ‘’they’re finally getting it. It kind of caught me by surprise that they were thinking that way.”
