Blacksox Get Pair of Wins in Cornelius Classic

The Burkburnett Blacksox' Cornelius Classic rolled on Friday night with the Blacksox winning a pair of games over Metroplex teams.

First, the Blacksox 18U team hosted the Fort Worth Monarchs, and rolled to a 12-2 run-rule win in four innings.

Fort Worth grabbed a quick 2-0 lead in the top of the first, but Burkburnett scored five runs in each of the second and fourth innings, and two more in the third for the easy win.

Then, the Blacksox 17U team defeated the Dallas Rookies 10-1 in five innings.
