RALEIGH — Curtis Linthicum’s grand slam highlighted a five-run sixth inning as Randleman outlasted East Rutherford 14-6 in a slugfest in the opening game of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A baseball championship series at Doak Field at North Carolina State University.

Randleman had scored five in its half of the fourth to extend the lead to 8-1 before the Cavaliers, the defending 2-A state champs, stormed back with five runs of their own in the fifth to make it 8-6. But Randleman got one in the fifth and five in the sixth to put it away.

Will Albertson had four hits and three runs batted in for the winners, now 27-3 overall, while Dylan Richardson had three hits and drove in three runs.
