Millsap scores first, Brock answers big
A leadoff double followed by a run-scoring single got the Millsap Bulldogs off to a good start on Tuesday, in a District 9-2A game played at Brock High School. But the three runs Millsap scored in the top of the opening inning produced a short-lived lead, as Brock’s Eagles responded with four in the bottom frame, with many more to come. The result was a 20-3 rout by the Eagles in a game lasting just four and a half innings.
