JASPER — The West Point varsity baseball team notched its second win of the season with a 5-1 road win over Curry on Friday night.

Wesley Waters was in mid-season form, tossing a complete-game one-hitter, striking out 11 batters and walking just one for his second victory.

Waters also contributed at the plate, going 2 for 3 with a solo home run. He also scored three runs.

Wesley Smith collected two hits and two RBIs on the night, while teammate Dalton Looney added two hits, one RBI and one run. Cameron Brock, Jordan McKenzie and Bryant Farley each had one hit for the Warriors.

The win improves West Point’s record to 2-1.

Cullman trailed 5-0 heading into the bottom of the fifth, but scored four runs in the frame to cut the deficit to one.

Kristian Robinson led the Bearcats with a two-hit performance, while Zac Crocker drove in two runs on a single.

Kolby Robinson, Samuel Murphree, Wesley Walker and Lance Cleveland garnered one hit apiece for Cullman in the loss. All but Cleveland also scored a run.

% Callaway (Ga.) 5, Cullman 4: The Bearcats blew a three-run lead in the bottom of the seventh inning on Saturday, ultimately losing to the Cavaliers on a bases-loaded walk.

Callaway’s other three runs in the frame came on an error, a single and a hit-by-pitch.

Jesse Scott was good for three strikeouts in four innings as Cullman’s starting pitcher. Troy Forrest struck out the same number of batters in two innings of relief.
