CRESTVIEW — A topsy turvey season continued for the Crestview High School baseball team Friday night when the Bulldogs stepped outside District 1-7A play to host Pace High School.

At times the Bulldogs couldn’t make the simplest of defensive plays as the Patriots scored eight unearned runs to take the 10-4 win.

“That was one of the worst displays of baseball I’ve seen in a long time,” Bulldog Coach Tim Gillis said. “I don’t know what the answer is, but I’m going to try and find it. I’m going to try and work I out and see what we can do.

“We’ve kind of hung in there in certain situations, but when you are playing good teams you can’t give up extra outs. Obviously that’s what we’ve done.”

Pace took the lead in the top of the first inning when leadoff man Tyler Sharp was safe at first on a Bulldog error and later scored on a base hit by Austin Brooks.

 Crestview (7-6) rallied in the bottom of the second inning and pushed four runs across the plate to take the lead.

Hunter Willis led off the inning with a single. Willis was still on board to batters later when Jordan Chamberlain stepped to the plate.
