COLUMBIA – The Westwood baseball team fell 2-1 to A.C. Flora Tuesday night.

The Redhawks gave up a run in the first inning and another in the third. They still gave themselves a chance to win in the bottom of the seventh.

Liam Ginnery led off that inning with a single and scored the team’s only run on Zach Gore’s double.

The rally got cut short quickly. With Gore at second, Colby Linn grounded out on a bunt, Sam Williams struck out, and Brandon Grindstaff flied out to end the game.

Westwood pitcher John Janco took the loss. He pitched a complete game, giving up two runs on five hits. He struck out 11 and walked two.

Westwood plays host to A.C. Flora tonight and travels to Colleton County Friday.
