After the storm passed thru last night the Falcons stormed to a victory over the Hi Toms by plating 11 runs on 9 hits. The JR Hi Toms scored 6 runs on 4 hits and 3 errors committed by the Falcon defense.
Southeast gave up 4 unearned runs if the first inning and were aided by a tremendous play by DJ Artis in a over the shoulder catch in center field on a deep ball to the wall. Pitcher Austin Coble settled in and pitched a great 5 innings only allowing 4 hits and 1 earned run.
In the 4th inning Forest Brothers helped the Falcons take the lead by smacking a base clearing triple with the bases loaded. Brothers scored from third on a passed ball. Ryan Stanley lined a double and stole third leaving Devin Sweet to score him with the RBI SAC fly. Avery Alley continued his hot streak with a double.
In the 5th a batter hit by a pitch and a walk allowed Forest Brothers to come to the plate. Brothers laid down a bunt and beat the throw to load the bases.Ryan Stanley hit a 3 run RBI but was thrown out trying to stretch the double to a triple. After a great pitching performance, Austin Coble turned the job over to Ryan Stanley for the final inning save. ” The team did not lose their composure when we spotted the Hi Toms four runs. Austin Coble grew some as a pitcher tonight. He faced adversity but was mature enough to make the adjustments and settle in for victory over a tough opponent.”said coach Dave Beasley.
The Falcons entertain the High Point Tommies tonight at Southeast with a 7 pm start. Southeast travels to McCrary Park in Asheboro Saturday for a 10 am match up.
“The kids enjoy playing on Astro Turf and I enjoy visiting historic McCrary Park but I think our field is one of the nicest high school fields to play on around. Our “Gamble Ground Crew” do a great job and our field was ready to go after the storm”. allowed coach Beasley.
