TAMPA, Fla. â€“ The Bryant Hornets defeated Rockford, Ill., on Friday morning 10-1 to sweep the Tampa Spring Training Tournament. The Hornetsâ€™ varsity and junior varsity went a combined 8-0 in the tournament.
Junior Jason Hastings started for Bryant on Friday and pitched five innings of one-run ball, which Rockford scored on a squeeze bunt.
The undefeated record was just a bonus as the Hornets played a lot of baseball and gained much-needed experience going into 7A/6A South Conference season when the team returns to face J.A. Fair on Tuesday.
