Tuesday afternoon, the Scots exacted a measure of revenge.
The Scots scored 12 combined runs in the second and sixth innings, avenging that earlier loss, 14-4, over the Patriots.
"This is a revenge week of sorts for us," said Scotland Coach Michael Sellers. "It gives us a chance to get something back that was taken from us early. We were undefeated when we went to Pinecrest (on Mar. 23) and mentally and possibly emotionally, we were just not there. Today, our approach was more aggressive."
After scoring five in the second inning, Scotland (13-2, 5-2 SEC) added a run apiece in the next two innings to lead 7-0.
Pinecrest (8-4, 3-3) responded with four runs in the top of the sixth to make it 7-4 before the Scots put the game away with seven runs in the bottom of the frame.
"In jayvee' games, when you get runs early, especially when you're up by a grand slam, it can take alot of the opposing team," Sellers said. "We started driving on that momentum, and scored so more runs. I was really wanting to close it out in the fifth but then we lost our composure a bit. I told them that we were coasting and that we needed to put our foot down on the gas pedal again."
William Adams (2-1) struck out eight and allowed just four hits over six innings.
Kwashawn Quick finished 3-for-5 for Scotland with three RBIs, including the final run in the sixth.
Adams and Jeremy Osteen both went 2-for-4 while Davis Jones went 1-for-1 with two RBIs.
In softball, the Scots won via forfeit because the Patriots did not have enough eligible players to compete.
