Late Runs Slip Richmond Past Terry Sanford

Richmond SR used a late offensive outburst and 5 solid innings of relief from Drew Loving (SS, RHP, 2018) to capture a 6-5 win over Terry Sanford HS.  Down 5-4 in the bottom of the sixth, Garet Weigman singled, advanced to third on an errant pick-off attempt, and scored on a SAC Fly by Braxton Furstein.  The next hitter gave us all a bit of deja vu as Brett Young singled, advanced to third on an errant pick attempt, and scored on a SAC Fly from Alex Anderson (INF, 2019).

Drew Loving entered the game as a relief pitcher when starter Jonathan Lee (LHP, 2018, UNC Pembroke commit) was pulled due to cramping in a lower leg.  Loving worked 5 innings, allowing 2 earned runs and striking out 4.  In the 7th, Terry Sanford’s Justin Ebert (SS, 2019) singled for his second hit of the day, but Loving eliminated the threat with a pop up to seal the win.

Player Evaluations:


Christian Jayne, OF, Terry Sanford HS, 2018
East Carolina commit.  One hit and one run on the day.  Good athlete in an athletic frame.  Ran 4.22 down the line on an infield single and 4.00 on a SAC bunt.  

 

Justin Ebert, SS, Terry Sanford HS, 2019
Average frame that has added strength in the off-season. Found the barrel three times in four at-bats. Simple, balanced setup. Direct path to the ball. Flat through the zone with average to slightly above bat speed. Works for extension.


DJ Herz, and stats from his start will be featured in an upcoming 2018 HS Scout Blog.

Pinecrest Outslugs Apex

A five run outburst in the bottom of the 5th gave Pinecrest HS a lead it would not relinquish in the non-conference battle with visiting Apex HS.  Down 5-3, the inning started with an infield single from Peyton Grant.  Leadoff hitter, Elliott Embler followed with a successful SAC bunt.  After a double from Dax Ingram, Nik Pry (OF, 2018, UNC commit) delivered the big blow with a three-run, no-doubter, over the left field wall, giving Pinecrest a 6-5 lead.  Pres Ostert (OF, 2019) doubled to CF scoring Zach Pruitt, finalizing the 5 run inning.  


Davis Wilson and Dax Ingram combined to throw 3.2 innings in relief, allowing 1 run and striking out 4.  Ingram gained the save, getting the final four outs.

Alexander Central Over Davie

On Saturday Davie County visited Alexander Central for a game that featured quality arms for both teams. Zach Hammer started for Alexander Central and cruised through 2 innings before Davie got on the board in the 3rd with a sac fly from Guy Brunelli. Carson Whisenhunt who started on the mound for Davie kept Alexander off the board until the 4th. Bryon Younts got things started with a walk and advanced to 3rd base on an errant throw by Whisenhunt. Younts then scored on a single by Josh Lafone. Davie added another run in the 4th on a passed ball. Alexander answered in the bottom of the 6th with 3 runs. A push bunt by Dylan Dessecker with runners on 1st and 3rd led to 2 runs, with help from the Davie defense. Bryson Hammer got the win in relief for Alexander working 3.2 innings and striking out 6.
