NEG totals for tonight(Wednesday) with the game resuming in the bottom of the 4th and pitcher Luis Paula at the plate……Double by Paula and then Johnny Brown followed Luis with an RBI Double and the game was tied at 3-3 after Asheboro had lead 3-2, as the game got going again this evening…..Harrison Phillips came up with a SAC fly to score Johnny Brown Jr. from second and NEG moved in front 4-3…..

Asheboro would not score again until the top of the seventh inning when the Blue Comets tied the game at 4-4 on a run by Ryan Rush and Asheboro was ready to take the lead and go up on top, when Josiel Colon came up with a perfect throw from centerfield after an Asheboro single and Colon’s throw to the plate was hauled in up the 3rd base line just a little bit, where NEG Ram catcher Jacob McCann made the hard tag and sent the Asheboro runner that was trying to score to the ground, for the HUGE out number three to end the inning…..Colon had another excellent throw in the 6th inning, to cut down a runner at the plate and that time, McCann stopped the runner dead in his tracks with the strong tag…..Big night behind the plate by Jacob McCann, as held the Blue Comets at bay, as they were trying to take this game away…Asheboro had four men reach base in the top of the seventh and only produced one run……NEG took care of Asheboro in the top of the 8th inning and that set the stage for the heroics by Jaylin Davis and he stepped in as the lead-off man for the Rams in the bottom of the 8th frame and ended the game with one swing of his bat, sending the walk-off home run deep to centerfield and LONG GONE and the NEG Rams win the game, 5-4…..

The Rams are still on their Run as they get set to face Eastern Wayne at home on Thursday night…….

  1. i never seen a high school kid with an arm like J.Colon ..save the game twice “WOW” unbelievable
    ***Jaylin Davis: heck of a CLUTCH hitter..

    GO Rams!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. You are exactly right about Colon and Jacob McCann had two super aggressive tags and I wouldn’t want to try and score on those two and Appalachian knew what they were doing when they went after Davis and UNC should feel the same about Paula….

  3. Way to go NEG! I remember when Jaylin was a clutch hitting 9 or 10 year old on my son’s team at PGCC. At that time he swung a bat that was bigger than he was but he could hit the ball a mile.
