News below from the APP web site and Jaylin Davis(Northeast Guilford High School) hits the first pitch he faces as a college baseball player for a three-run home run off of N.C. State All-American Carlos Rodon…..UNREAL and what a scenario, you couldn’t write a better script than that for a Guilford County kid…We covered him for years and helped put him on the map and it looks like the baseball journey for Jaylin Davis is far from over now, ‘it has only just begun’……

RALEIGH, N.C. — Appalachian State University baseball torched first-team all-American Carlos Rodon for three home runs and four Appalachian State pitchers combined to limit NC State to just four hits in the Mountaineers’ 6-3 win over the No. 8-ranked Wolfpack in Friday’s season-opener at Doak Field.

Freshman Jaylin Davis(Northeast Gulford HS) and juniors Noah Holmes and Preston Troutman all homered off Rodon to give Appalachian State a 5-0 advantage just three-and-a-half innings into the game and pitchers Jamie Nunn, Taylor Thurber, Tyler Moore and Rob Marcello made the lead stand up in the Mountaineers’ fifth win over a nationally ranked team in the past calendar year.

Davis started the onslaught against Rodon by turning on the first pitch he faced as a collegiate batter and launching it high over the left-field wall for a two-out, three-run blast that gave Appalachian a commanding 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Holmes and Troutman followed with solo blasts in the second and fourth innings, respectively, that stretched the advantage to 5-0 in front of a stunned NC State season-opening record crowd of 2,396.

Offensively, Davis added a ninth-inning double to go along with his first-inning homer and was the only Mountaineer with multiple hits.
