CRESTVIEW — With start of District 1-7A play set for Friday the Crestview High School baseball team is still in the process of fine tuning some things in lineup.

Monday the Bulldogs looked as if that fine tuning process is coming along just fine as they hosted Baker.

Sparked by a seven-run first inning Crestview cruised to an 11-0 win.

The game was called in the fifth inning on the 10-run rule.

Bulldog starting pitcher Justin Abdo worked four innings on the mound and allowed just two hits while striking out seven Gator batters to get the win. Hunter Willis worked the fifth inning and picked up two strike outs without allowing a base runner.

Crestview Coach Tim Gillis said it took Abdo a while to get going, but after that he did well.

“I thought he (Abdo) was really good after the second inning,” Gillis said. “He wasn’t sharp early on, but he got it going and he had some good stuff working with his fastball and breaking pitches.
