Hampton was unable to battle back from an early deficit on Tuesday night.
The Bulldogs dropped a hard-fought 8-3 decision to North Greene in District 1-A play at Scotty Bunton Field as the Huskies split the series after Hampton’s win on Monday.
“We congratulate North Greene – we lost the game in the 1st inning,” Hampton Head Coach Nicholas Perkins said. “It is very disappointing. We had a chance to have somewhat of a statement win, and we did not play well.”
North Greene’s bats came out of the gate hot as the Huskies plated seven runs in the top of the first inning.
Hampton got on the board as Conor Jones drove in Jonathon Greenwell in the bottom of the second, and Caleb Royston and Greenwell scored off a North Greene error in the bottom of the third to pull within four runs.
After North Greene added a run in the visiting side of the seventh, Chance Point and Morgan Lyons got on base to lead off the inning, and Collin Morgan drew a walk to load the bases.
However, Hampton was unable to complete the rally.
Royston was 3-for-7 at the plate, while McKinley Kuhn, Brody Hicks, Point, and Greenwell each added a hit.
Greenwell struck out for Huskies on the mound in just over five innings of work as he allowed one unearned run on one hit.
Morgan struck out the two batters he faced.
