The Southeast pitchers did not allow Kernersville a earned run and could look at the scoreboard and see that the defense had posted 6 errors. The Falcon offense posted 5 runs on only 4 hits and were aided by 2 errors from Kernersville. “We are having growing pains with these young kids. They are enthused but a little nervous and that can contribute to errors.We need to adjust better at the plate. Kernersville threw low velocity pitchers that hit their spots and we only scratched out 4 hits. Pitching is not the problem– we are having trouble with hitting,catching and throwing.” offered Charlie Pannell
“It was not pretty but it was a win.”said Shannon Smith. The Falcons travel to historic Holt-Moffitt Field in Lexington tonight at 6:30pm.
