LYNCHBURG – Fishburne Military School baseball team broke open a close game with a six-run sixth inning on its way to a 10-3 victory over Virginia Episcopal School.
The Caissons trailed 3-0 after the first inning, but tied things up in the third with a three-run outburst. It was quiet until the sixth, when Fishburne put up the six-spot.
The Caissons got a two-run double from Tyree Scott, an RBI single by Calen Owens and an RBI single by Jacob Harrison to account for the run-scoring hits in the sixth.
Quasean Napier went 4-4 for Fishburne, getting a double and three singles.
Grant Miezis got the complete-game win for the Caissons, allowed three runs on three hits while striking out seven and walking one.
