After an exciting 4-1 win over Eagleville at Vanderbilt on Monday, the Forrest Rockets completed the sweep over their District 9-A opponents with a big 11-1 five-inning run-rule win in Chapel Hill Tuesday night.

The Rockets had only five hits in the contest and were the recipients of nine bases on balls issued by the Eagleville pitching staff, plus five errors in the field by the Rutherford County squad.
