By Charles Curcio, Sports Editor

Thursday, May 9, 2013 — The fifth-seeded Albemarle Bulldogs took to a soggy yet well-prepared North Moore High School baseball field on Tuesday night to take on No. 2-seed West Montgomery for the 2013 Yadkin Valley Conference tournament.

With the threat of storms and dark, foreboding clouds for the entire length of the game, the Bulldogs fell behind early and suffered a 4-1 loss to the Warriors.

Hunter Hamilton pitched five innings to pick up the win for West Montgomery (18-5), while Cody McKenzie pitched two scoreless innings to pick up the save.

Justin Crump picked up the loss for the Bulldogs (11-15). Bryan Blanton relieved Crump in the fifth and pitched two scoreless relief innings.
