PLEASANT VALLEY — Braxton County — collecting 12 hits and taking advantage of four errors — forced East Fairmont into a comeback mode during Thursday’s Class AA regional semifinal at the East field.

The Bees mounted rallies but saw their season come to an end with a 7-4 setback to the Eagles.

“It seemed like every time we started to make a move and come back on them and cut that deficit down, we’d come up and have an error or they’d have a key base hit,” East coach John Postlewait said. “It seemed like every time we made an error, they followed it up with a big base hit.”
