Nathan Barnes picked up his third win of the season in dominating fashion, going six innings, while allowing only two hits and striking out 11 to help fuel Arcadia’s 7-3 defeat of Chincoteague Tuesday evening.
Barnes helped his own cause at the plate, going 2-4, with two RBIs, while scoring two runs. Tyler Padgett and Armonte Dickerson also had two hits apiece for the Firebirds, and Brooks Mariner Jr. and Bradley Hall each added RBI hits. The Ponies staged a last inning rally but fell short, as Arcadia notched its fourth win in the regular season finale. Marcello Rosanova took the loss on the mound for Chincoteague.
