Mosley Cruises Past Escambia with Impressive Opening Round Victory


CJ Butts

Jaden Rudd led the way for Mosley on the mound and the offense scored in four out of five innings, pounding out 10 hits in a 10-0 victory over Escambia High in the first round of the FHSAA playoff.

Jojo Blackmon (UAB commit) led off the game with a single to right for Escambia. An error followed by a passed ball quickly had runners in scoring position with 1 out but Rudd struck out back to back hitters and it was all Mosley from there. Rudd worked into the 5th inning going: 4.2 IP 3 H 0 R 3 BB 9 K.


The Dolphin offense plated 3 runs in their opening frame.
Tyler Wave got things going with an RBI double to right center scoring Rudd. After a walk, Cole Horton lined a 2-run single into right to take a quick 3-0 lead.


Mosley added on in the 3rd as
Ethan Campbell (Jacksonville commit) and Rock Holland delivered consecutive bloop doubles down the right field line making it 4-0. Trent Nelson drove in Holland with a perfectly executed safety squeeze to push the lead to 5-0.

A sac fly from Campbell tacked on another run in the 4th and Cole Horton (3-4, 4 RBI) lined a gapper to bring in 2 more in the 5th. Mosley would add 2 more runs in the inning via HBP and a passed ball to put the run rule in effect and win 10-0 in 5 innings. They will host Milton next week in the 5A Region 1 Semifinal.
