EDENTON, N.C. – Chance Shepard and Stefan Kancylarz each logged three-run homers Tuesday as the Edenton Steamers beat the High Point-Thomasville HiToms 8-5, snapping the HiToms’ six-game winning streak.

The HiToms (24-26, 12-10) jumped to a 2-0 lead in the top of the second when Glen Batson (Clemson) drove in a run with a RBI groundout and Cody Brittain (USC Upstate) followed him two batters later with an infield RBI single. Edenton (34-16, 13-9) notched single runs in the bottom of the second and the third to even the score.

With the score tied at two and a runner at third base in the top of the fourth, Batson struck for his third homer in two games giving the HiToms a 4-2 lead. It didn’t take Edenton long to respond, however. With two outs, a single and an error put runners on for left fielder Chase Shepard who smacked a three-run homer to left to give the Steamers a 5-4 lead.

Edenton added insurance in the same fashion in the bottom of the seventh as designated hitter Stefan Kancylarz drilled a three-run homer to right field for the game’s final tally of 8-5.

The HiToms will head to McCrary Park on Wednesday night to face the Asheboro Copperheads in a crucial game regarding the CPL West playoffs. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 P.M.
