The Central Private Rebels traveled to Jackson for a couple of games on Tuesday and returned with mixed results.  After they suffered their first loss of the season to AAA power Pillow Academy in the first game 5-3, the Rebels came back to beat 3 time AAA state champion Hillcrest Academy 6-3.
Taylor Ort was the starter for the Rebels and suffered his first loss of the season against 3 wins.  After a scoreless 2 innings, Ort began the third with a single and was driven home by catcher Brennan Courville to open the scoring.  Pillow would go ahead in the 4th after a lead off walk to Daniel Allen and a double by Sam Grossman who scored after an error and a wild pitch.  They would then add three runs in the 6th following 3 walks and an error by the Rebels
Thomas Bourgeois hammered a fastball over the 20 foot fence in right field 330 feet away after Jacob Fryoux led off with a walk in the bottom of the inning to close the gap to 5-3 but that was as close as the Rebels got as they fell victim for the first time this year.  The Rebels are now 12-1 on the season.
