The Fauquier Falcons baseball squad faced Brentsville on April 25. After three innings, the game was scoreless. Brentsville took the first lead after two defensive errors by Fauquier. The game would remain 1-0 until the bottom of the fifth when freshman Ty Pavlock hit a deep double to the right center field gap, and senior Hunter Ball scored. The game was a pitchers duel all the way through, and drove the game into extra innings. Fauquier won in the bottom of the eighth with a walk of run scored with the bases loaded when the Brentsville third-baseman committed an error.
“I felt great,” Smoot said. “I felt in control, and I haven’t felt like that in a while. This is definitely the best game I have ever pitched in high school.”
