How about the Davie JV baseball team, which stayed hot last week and ran its winning streak to seven.

Eight War Eagles produced a hit and Hunter Daywalt was nearly perfect on the mound as Davie buried visiting Glenn 15-0 in three innings on April 25.

Davie’s eight hits were spread among Carson Queen (1-2, three RBIs), Larson Stem (1-3), Kason Stewart (1-2), Coston Colamarino (1-2), Daywalt (1-2, two RBIs), Eli Webber (1-1), Corbin Angus (1-1) and Gray Collins (1-1, three RBIs, triple).

Daywalt threw three hitless innings with one walk and three Ks.

Davie 14, NS 6

One day later in a nonconference game, Parker Davis shined at the plate and on the mound as Davie evened its record at 9-9 by overpowering North Stanly at home.

In the third, Davie turned a 2-1 deficit into a 7-2 lead behind four hits, a walk and an error. The hits came from Queen, Stem, Daywalt and Angus.

The Comets used four hits to chop Davie’s lead to 7-6 in the fourth. Davie, though, answered right back in its half of the fourth. Stewart, Davis, Daywalt and Webber came through with hits as Davie regained command at 10-6. For good measure, it poured across four more runs in the fifth.

“When you start winning and the balls start falling in holes that they hadn’t fell in, you get used to it and it becomes contagious,” varsity coach Joey Anderson said. “Then you keep digging, you keep fighting, you keep playing and most of the time it ends up pretty good for you.”

Davie got two hits from Queen (2-3), Davis (2-2, three runs), Daywalt (2-4, three RBIs) and Collins (2-3, two steals). Davis also got it done as Davie’s third pitcher of the day. He held North to no runs over 2.2 innings as he walked one and fanned five.
