JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Both Elizabethton and Science Hill had very different performances from the plate Monday night, but each squad chalked up a home conference victory.
During the game, the Cyclones wore replica jerseys of the Elizabethton Blue Grays, a former semi-pro negro league baseball team. On top of playing homage to the one of the areas most historic teams, Elizabethton dismantled Sullivan Central 14-2.
Science Hill was in a pitching duel against Daniel Boone, but the Toppers narrowly escaped with a 1-0 victory. The win gives the Johnson City squad sole possession of first place in the Big 7 conference.
