Bearden homers in Mavs’ victory
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
On Monday night Will Bearden hit a home run against Carroll Academy. The following night, against district opponent Leake Academy, Bearden hit another homer, this time to straight-away center field as the Mavs won 7-1.
“He’s (Bearden) starting to do a lot more things with the bat,” Manchester head coach A.J. Downs said. “He’s had to take over the lead off role since Demarcus has been hurt. Will lead off for us last year and I think he’s more patient in that regard. He takes pitches and if you make a mistake, he’ll make you pay for it.”
