Sunday’s game from Dennis Garcia, with the Asheboro Courier-Tribune….…www.courier-tribune.com
ASHEBORO – Braxton Davis shook off a slow start to hurl 5 2/3 impressive innings and Randolph County put the finishing touches on a second-round playoff sweep over Greensboro Post 53 with an 8-7 victory Sunday night at McCrary Park.
Post 45, which won the best-of-five series 3-0, will play either Kannapolis or Winston-Salem in the third round with the winner of that series reaching the Area III finals.
The win didn’t come easily as Post 45 took an 8-2 lead into the seventh inning. However, Greensboro scored five times in the seventh and had the tying run at second base before Travis Winslow, like he did the night before, came in and recorded the last two outs of the game for the save.
Davis walked three straight batters after retiring the first batter of the game and a two-run single gave Greensboro the early lead, but Davis settled down and didn’t allow another hit as he left with two outs in the top of the sixth.
“Braxton had two good outings prior and he wasn’t as sharp, but give him credit because he stayed in there and had some short innings,” Post 45 coach Ronnie Pugh said.
