We have more baseball scores rolling in today and from the looks of things Northwest Guilford has won the Crystal Coast Classic with a 9-2 win over East Carteret on Wednesday. The Vikings defeated New Bern 9-7 on Tuesday to propel them into the finals against EC. NWG was led in the championship game by winning pitcher Robbie McIntosh, the son of Jim and Angie McIntosh(or is it Bobby and Laura?). Young Robbie struck out six EC batters, plus McIntosh was hitting the ball with authority when he got his chance at the plate, by going 3-3 with 2 runs scored, 2 doubles, 2 RBI’s and 2 double cheeseburgers. Big Mac and NWG had quite a tournament and Seth Hanner was there to help out on Wednesday with a double and an RBI for the NWG Vikings.
Big Rob Mac was on the attack on Wednesday and we were talking yesterday about the work turned in by Logan Self on Monday, but the real man must have been diving into the waters of the Crystal Coast with full force as Alex Swim came dog-paddling back home to Greensboro, with the tournament MVP trophy in hand. Alex Swim of NWG, the MVP of the BB&T Crystal Coast Classic. Swim had(and I hope these are total tournament numbers) 5RBI’s, 4 runs scored, one home run, a double, and he went 4-10 at the plate and he is your MVP as NWG wins the title.
Tommy Houston also had a good tourney for NWG and I wonder if he is the brother of NWG Viking record-setting pole vaulter Scott Houston? There may be some other NWG players that made major contributions. If so, leave your name and numbers in our comment box…..
As we travel out to Northeast Guilford we find that Ragsdale continues to pour it on as the State’s #1 team, according to the Impact Baseball 3-A Poll, ran past Eastern Guilford 13-2. The Ragsdale Tigers improve to (11-1) and they are getting primed for that meeting next Tuesday with Southeast Guilford at SEG…
On Wednesday, Ragsdale was led by winning pitcher Bennett Hixon who struck out 5 Eastern Guilford Wildcat batters in 5 innings of work. Big Ben Fultz continues to put a hurtz on the baseball as BBF was 4-4, with a triple, a double, and 4RBI’s. The “D Man”, centerfielder DeSean Anderson had 2RBI’s and he scored 2 runs for the Tigers. No news on Nate Cash or Nick McBride, or Kyle Brandenburg or Billy Stone from Wednesday’s game. For Eastern Guilford, Derek Holbrook was the bright spot for the Wildcats with an extra-large double.
No news on what they are going to do today at NEG and nothing to report on the NEG-Southern Guilford game if there was one on Wednesday. What are they going to do out there today? Stay tuned, we’ll know more on Friday morning and if you know more today, then leave us a note in our comment box.
