EASTERN ALAMANCE BEATS WESTERN GUILFORD HORNETS DESPITE ALEC SAWYER 3 RUN HR
Eastern Alamance beat the Western Guilford Hornets 11-6 in the Graham Booster Easter Tournament on Saturday. Eastern Alamance was led by Pitcher Tyler Bryant who registered the win. The Hornets did not go down easy after spotting EA an early lead as The Hornet offense got going a little too late. The WG offense was sparked by senior Catcher Alec Sawyer. Sawyer blasted his first career 3 run Homerun in the 5th inning to close the gap. Lucas Olszewski banged out 3 hits in 4 trips to the plate and Josh Wagoner stayed hot at the plate and added 2 hits to the cause.
Sawyers HR ball was going to be delivered to his very special Mom ( who has done so much for Western Baseball ) at her home as Trina Sawyer has fallen ill these last couple months. Trina never missed any games until recently and I have to say her son has one special ball to give her…Everyone in the Western Guilford Baseball family is praying and thinking about Trina and we can’t wait to see her at a ball game in the very near future.
Eastern Alamance – 11
Western Guilford – 6
Win – Bryant
