**********The Red Wings dropped Monday night’s contest against Winston-Salem by a score of 7-4 in eight innings.**********
The offense took a couple of innings to break through, but it eventually did in the fifth inning for Post 53. After having only two hits through four innings, the Red Wings’ offense came alive in the fifth inning. With two outs, Ethan Edwards reached on an error and scored on an RBI single from Justin Guy, who made his season debut today. Guy scored on a single from Brady Quakenbush before a groundout ended the inning. In the sixth inning, Edwards hit a sacrifice fly that allowed Joseph Morgan to score after entering as a pinch runner and allowed Braxton King to go to third base. The following pitch, Collin Smith stole second base and forced an error from Winston-Salem that allowed King to score, making the score 4-1.
On the mound, Bryce Amoriello drew the start for Post 53. Amoriello pitched great for the Red Wings, going 6.0+ innings, allowing only five hits and two walks. Two of his three earned runs came in the seventh inning on a shallow single to left field. Ruben Santos came in to relieve Amoriello in a save situation, but wound up taking the loss. Santos went 1.1 innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on three hits and four walks. Santos did strike out three batters, but it wasn’t enough to keep Winston-Salem in check. Carson Smith relieved Santos in the eighth and did not allow an earned run.
The Red Wings fell to 3-6, 1-4 on the year and dropped to three games behind division leader Randolph County, who took sole possession of first place as Davidson County fell to Eastern Randolph. Greensboro will travel to Davidson on Wednesday night, looking to get back in the win column after their three game skid.
