from the HiToms:
High Point-Thomasville used a six-run 4th inning to defeat the Asheboro Copperheads at Finch Field Friday night 6-5, earning its third straight home win.
A grand slam from Southern Miss’ Danny Lynch headlined the big inning and gave the HiToms the lead for good. Lynch now has three home runs in his last five games.
Bloomsburg’s Ben Newbert and Houston Baptist’s Christian Dumont followed up the Lynch blast with RBI hits of their own to push the HPT advantage to 6-2.
Asheboro opened the scoring in the third inning on a solo home run and an RBI double to take a 2-0 lead.
The Copperheads drew a run back in the 6th and tacked on two more in the 7th to keep things close. Dallas Baptist’s Luke Trahan came on in the 9th inning and closed out the victory, earning his second save of the 2019 season.
Mississippi State’s Tyler Spring picked up the win on the mound. He was relieved by Duke’s Josh Nifong, who struck out back-to-back batters in the 5th inning to pitch out of a bases-loaded jam. USC Upstate’s Will Lancaster took over for Nifong before giving way to Trahan in the 9th.
The HiToms mashed 11 hits in the game and received multi-hit performances from Dallas Baptist’s Blayne Jones, Charlotte’s Jacob Whitley, Catawba’s Bryce Butler, and Dumont.
