Ty Sain and Easton Stanley drove in three runs each as North Davie’s baseball team buried Phoenix Academy 18-0 in two and a half innings on April 19.
Sain had a double and Stanley went 2 for 2 as host North piled up 10 runs in the bottom of the first inning.
Sharing the pitching were Alex Bowles (two innings) and Nolan Allen (one inning), who combined for seven strikeouts.
One day later, the Wildcats were too much for visiting North Carolina Leadership Academy. Ty Greene, Ian Patton, Blake French and Sain combined on a three-hitter as North rolled 10-2 in six innings.
Greene pitched four shutout innings. Patton, French and Sain recorded two outs each. “Ty had another quality start,” coach Trevor Gooch said.
Offensively, Hayden Potts went 3-4 as North took command with a five-run second. French went 2-4 with a double. Sain went 1-3 with three RBIs. Noah Potts went 1-2 with a triple as North upped its record to 10-2.
The defensive standouts were shortstop Potts and catcher Tanner Steinour.
“Hayden made some defensive gems at shortstop,” Gooch said. “Tanner had another huge game. He’s tough as nails behind the plate.”
