Virginia High’s 2021 condensed baseball season came to an end with a 9-8 loss to Gate City. The Bearcats jumped out of the gate with four runs in the first inning but Gate City scored three of their own in the bottom half. The Blue Devils didn’t need to hit the ball hard, only hit it in good spots. The rest of the game saw both teams scrapping for runs. Gate City held a two run lead going into the sixth when VHS would strike back with three runs to take a one run lead. Gate City again answered in the bottom and tied the game at 8-8. Virginia High went quietly with a three up, three down seventh inning leaving the door open for the Blue Devils to take advantage with a walk off RBI.
