Carolina Acceleration High School Baseball and Softball Tonight with Round Two Playoffs continuing and 4 Guilford County teams in action, plus NCISAA Baseball Quarterfinals today

**********NCHSAA Playoffs Round Two Continues Tonight/Saturday Evening**********

BASEBALL Games set for this evening/Saturday night:
#10 Hickory Ridge(20-5) at #7 Northwest Guilford(18-8) Tonight at 6pm
We are thinking NWG will be going with Tim Cao or Hayden Summers on the mound…..

For Northwest Guilford Gavin Mortenson is batting .429 with 7 Doubles and 17 RBI….Joey Rezek is batting .410 with 6 Doubles, 2 Triples and 1 HR, plus 16 RBI…Pitching Hayden Summers is (3-0)/0.62 ERA, Tim Cao is (4-1)/2.02 ERA, plus you might see Ethan Blanchard who is (3-1)/1.68 ERA…

#15 Mount Tabor(15-12) at #2 Southeast Guilford(22-3) Tonight at 7pm
Southeast looking to have junior Ryan Douglas on the hill this evening…..
(There will be an NCHSAA Regional Track Meet going on at Southeast Guilford TODAY, so the ‘Falcon Land’ will be a very busy area….Parking may be at a premium, hopefully we can find a few open spaces up by the Tennis Courts…There is talk “Big Charlie” Pannell will be there and if “Big Charlie” is in the house, space will be limited.)

No updated stats for SEG, but last check we had, Douglas was (6-1)….

#11 East Rowan(19-7) at #6 Southwest Guilford(22-3) Tonight at 7pm
Southwest will be going with sophomore Jordan Shafer and freshman Easton Morgan on the bump this evening….Coach Reid Holmes said last night that East Rowan will be going with their #2 man as well and he expects a very tight ball game with all of the baseball tradition coming out of Rowan County and with the American Legion programs they have down there, many years, Rowan County is running something like a ‘baseball assembly line’, or it least it looks that way to me…..SWG’s #1 pitcher, senior Jacob Edwards worked for the Cowboys in their 11-1 win over Hickory, back on Wednesday night and he will not be available tonight….

For SWG Jacob Edwards batting .486 with 6 Doubles, 13 RBI and 34 runs scored…Tom Grose batting .453 with 14 Doubles, 1 Triple, 36 runs scored and 34 RBI…Isaiah Hairston batting .423 with 11 Doubles, 1 Triple, 2 HR and 37 RBI…Garrison Thornton batting .359 with 5 Doubles, 14 RBI and 36 runs scored…Pitching Jordan Shafter(4-0)/0.87 ERA…Easton Morgan (7-1)/1.87 ERA…
