The Charles Page High School varsity baseball team (22-9) outhit, out-batted, and out-fielded Booker T. Washington High School (15-16) in a non-district 2-0 road victory Thursday night.

Watkins scored the second run as well, once again with help from the Hornets. A walk, a steal, a passed ball, and a sacrifice fly from Ty Steelman brought in the final run of the game. 

Tyler Ash (3-1) got the start and the win on the mound, throwing one hit, five strikeouts, and two walks in four innings. 

Seth Villines (1-0) threw one walk and one strikeout in the fifth inning. Riley Rutledge (1-0) recorded his first save with two strikeouts in the final two innings.
