Game one featured Valley View taking on Westside to begin the action at the summit. Valley View jumped out to an early lead with a big first inning and never looked back to go on to win 13-1.
The Blazers stepped on the gas pedal with a 6 run first inning and the Warriors could only push across one run.
In the second game of the night, Jonesboro battled Nettleton in a powerful non-conference fight. The game was a pitchers dual as the Hurricane managed just one run in the 4th to break the tie. Jonesboro went on to win the game 1-0.
The Raiders gave a scare to the Hurricane victory in the bottom half of the final frame when the bases were loaded and two out. A Raider line-out to second base finished off the game and capped off a great battle by both teams.
All four teams now turn their attention to the home stretch as the postseason comes into sight. The Hardball Summit serves as an annual tune-up for the teams in Jonesboro.
