Nathan Teague, RHP, Southern Alamance HS, 2023
A 6-foot-7, 220 pound senior with a ton of upside turned in a dominating performance on Tusday of last week, handing Chapel Hill their first loss of the season.  Teague, a Vanderbilt commit, tossed 7 innings, giving up 1 hit while striking out 15 without issuing a walk.  The Patriot offense gave Teague a run in the bottom of the 1st, eventually securing a 3-0 lead, and that is all he would need as he was dealing.  For the game, Teague threw 95 pitches, 65 for strikes, a 68% clip.  Along with the 15 K’s, the Tiger offense was limited to 2 fly balls and 2 ground ball outs.  Teague started off 58% of the 24 hitters faced with a strike.
