Falcons pull away from Kavaliers

The Fuqua School varsity baseball team recovered from an early 2-0 deficit against visiting Kenston Forest School to pull away for a 12-5 win on Monday.

Pitching was key in helping the Falcons improve to 5-8 on the season, with junior Devin Allen throwing seven strikeouts, giving up three hits, two walks and hitting one batter in nearly five innings on the mound.

“I was pleased with Devin’s being able to go deep in the game,” Fuqua coach John Adams said. “When you’ve got more than two games a week at this level, you hope you’ve got enough pitching to get through it.”

On offense, Falcons freshman Christian Adams was 3-for-4 with two singles and a double, sophomore Hunter Gilliam was 2-for-3 with a walk and Allen was 1-for-3.

Fuqua hosts USA Home School on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. and visits The Covenant School on Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
