PENSACOLA — Tuesday’s game with Washington High School was just what the doctor ordered for the Crestview High School baseball team that was in a two-game skid.

Bulldog starting pitcher Corey Armstrong scattered four hits over six innings of work and struck out seven Wildcat batters and the Crestview offensive pounded out 12 hits in a 10-3 win.

“I was proud of the guys,” Crestview Coach Tim Gillis said. “We’ve been working hard in practice swinging the bats. We came out and found some holes and we had some guys have some good quality at bats and that’s what we are trying to do.

”We are trying to start from scratch a little bit and get rolling. They’ve been working hard. Sometimes things are a little bit tough and you just have to hang in there.

Freshman shortstop B.A. Larkins, who was just called up from the junior varsity, led the Bulldogs (8-7) with three hits in his first varsity start.

Armstrong not only did the job on the mound. He had an excellent night at the plate reaching base four times and scoring twice on two hits, a walk and a Washington error.

Pierce Cadenhead reached safely in all four of his plate appearance. Cadenhead had a hit, a walk and twice reached on Wildcat errors.
