CRESTVIEW — If there was a silver lining for the Crestview High School baseball team in Friday’s District 1-7A loss to Tate High School Bulldog Coach Tim Gillis couldn’t find it.

Even when Gillis admitted that the No. 1 seed in the district tournament will probably have multiple losses he wasn’t looking post what happened as the Aggies upended Crestview 7-4.

“You’ve got to hold serve at home,” he said. “We didn’t play well at home and I’ve got a problem with that.

“We’ve got to get better home.”

The Aggies did most of their damage in the second inning when the sent 10 batters to the plate and scored four runs on four hits.

Rashan Johnson’s two-run single was the big shot of the inning as the Aggies took the lead they would hold the rest of the night.

Tate added a fifth run in the top of the third and was up 5-0 before Crestview got on the scoreboard.
