Larson Stem and Dane Porter accounted for 5 of their team’s 9 hits, and Davie’s JV baseball team erased a 4-2 deficit in an 8-4 home win over Glenn on March 11.

In the third inning, Hunter Shutt scored on a wild pitch and Porter’s hit plated Ty Goodson as Davie took a 2-1 lead.

In the top of the fifth, the Bobcats surged to their 4-2 lead as an error was followed by four hits.

The Davie fifth began with consecutive walks to Goodson, Carson Queen and Porter, and Davie would score twice to knot the game at 4-4.

The sixth is when the War Eagles (3-1) secured their third straight win. They did it with two-out lightning. A Stem single was sandwiched by two outs. After Goodson walked, Queen, Porter, Bentley Moody and Will Wands put together consecutive hits as Davie poured across four runs.

Stem went 3 for 3 with 3 stolen bases, and Porter went 2-3 with 2 RBIs. Davie got 1 hit from Goodson (1-2, 3 runs, 2 walks, 2 steals), Queen (1-2, 2 runs, 2 walks, 2 steals), Moody (1-4) and Wands (1-4, double).

Coach Sam Wyrick employed three arms. Eli Webber pitched the first three innings, working around 3 walks to only allow 1 unearned run. The winner was Tucker Hobbs, who went 3 innings, and the save went to Hunter Daywalt, who overcame 2 walks in the seventh by striking out 2.
