Larson Stem was the top hitter, twin brother Clarke Stem struck out seven in a span of 30 pitches and Davie’s JV baseball team closed its season by whipping up on Glenn, 14-1, in Kernersville on May 1.

The War Eagles had an up-and-down – well, it was actually down and up – season that ended with smiles all around. They endured an eight-game losing streak from March 11-April 11. Then between April 12-May 1, they ripped off eight straight wins to finish 10-9.

Six days after the War Eagles battered the Bobcats 15-0, they did the same thing on the road in five mercy-rule innings. They blended eight hits with 10 walks and scored in every at-bat, led by L. Stem’s 2-for-3 effort with two runs, two RBIs, a walk and a double.

Davie got one hit from six different guys: Hunter Potts (1-1, two runs, two walks), Carson Queen (1-1, three walks), Hunter Daywalt (1-2, two runs, three RBIs, walk), Eli Webber (1-3, two runs), Coston Colamarino (1-1, two runs, double) and Logan Allen (1-1, two RBIs). Kason Stewart was hitless, but he contributed two RBIs and three walks.

On the mound, C. Stem allowed one hit in three innings, walked none, had those strikeouts and threw 25 strikes and just five balls. Josh Whitaker struck out two in the fourth, and Ricky Plowman worked the fifth.

Meanwhile, the Bobcats (2-11) had as many errors (four) as hits.
