Gators win Justin Richards tournament

Friday belonged to Baker as the Gators pounded Northview 12-2 and made short work of Choctawhatchee 17-2. Both games were called in the fifth inning on the run rule.

Hicks and Rainey combined for the win against Northview. The trio of Weidenhammer, Bubba Ellis and Dylan Josey shut down the Indians.

The way Baker swung the bats against Northview and Choctaw pitching might have been the least of Johnson's worries.

The Gators fell behind the Chiefs 1-0 in the first inning. But the Northview lead didn't last long.

Baker sent 12 battters to the plate and scored eight runs in the second inning to take control of the game.

Things started innocently enough, with Kyle Davis drawing a walk and Lowery connecting for a base hit. With one out, Austin Davis was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

Rainey walked to score Kyle Davis. Lowery scored on a Dakota Blackburn single, and Farmer cleared the bases with a double that increased the Gator lead to 5-1.
