YORKTOWN—Southampton High School’s baseball season came to end Monday when the Indians lost 2-1 in 10 innings to Tabb High School in the opening of the Region 1 tournament.
The Indians finished with a 16-6 overall record and a 12-4 Southside District record.
Billy Nixon threw eight innings, striking out seven and giving up five hits for Southampton. The Indians scored their lone run in the top of the second inning when freshman cleanup hitter Jack Bunn laced a double to left-center field off Coastal Carolina-bound Patrick Corbett.
Bunn moved to third on an error by the Tabb center fielder and later scored on a Brian Marks ground ball to shortstop.
The Tigers scored in the bottom of the third when Tabb shortstop Cody Norris doubled to right-center and later scored on a single by center fielder Chris Kegelman.
The game remained tied until Tabb scored the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning when the Indians had trouble finding the strike zone.
Marks went 2-for-4, including a double and RBI. Bunn was 2-for-5 with a double.
Southampton ended with seven hits and no errors.
Tabb had six hits and four errors.
“The Indians finished their season on a high note as they battled hard against perennial Region I powers Tabb and Powhatan,” said Southampton Coach Wes Griffith.
Tabb goes on to host Jamestown in the regional semifinal.
