NCHSAA 3-A State Championship Series Best-of-Three at N.C. State’s Doak Field….(We will be looking to have updates on tonight’s game here at the site and LIVE scores on the game during our Greensboro Grasshoppers broadcast on AM950 radio…..)

Northeast Guilford Rams(29-1) vs. South Point Red Raiders(25-2) Tonight at 8pm……

Northeast has not won a State Title in baseball, since back in 1966 and the Rams won back-to-back championships on the 2-A level in 1965 and then again in 1966 and the Rams were the runners-up in 1967…..I believe those were the Ronnie Rudd-days and the teams were very strong in the Ronnie Rudd-era….

NEG is very strong this season and they have had a very successful program, under head David Lawing for the past 14 years and have seen names like Mitch Atkins(Chicago Cubs/Baltimore Orioles), Jeremy Synan(N.C. State/Greensboro Grasshoppers/Florida Marlins) and Nathan Cockman(N.C. State) come through the program during, that time period……

NEG will come at you with tonight’s projected starting pitcher in Luis Paula(North Carolina Tar Heel signee) and then you have hitters that can put the ball in play and send the ball over the outfield fence in Raleigh…..
Josiel Colon-CF
Luis Paula-P
Jaylin Davis-SS
Johnny Brown Jr.-1b
Jacob McCann-C
Caleb McCann-2b
Harrison Phillips-3b
Jordan Brown-LF
Matt Millaway-RF
(Key reserves are Cole Wyrick[C] and Shane Flippin[2B])

#2 NEG Ram pitcher, set for Game Two on Saturday, is Harrison Phillips and then Game Three starter if necessary, would be junior Caleb McCann…..Other pitchers that would be available include Jaylin Davis, Josiel Colon and Matt Millaway…….
