After scoring just 10 runs in four games, the Davie JV baseball team broke loose at Southwest Guilford on March 12.

The War Eagles (2-3) played a perfect game and stomped the Cowboys 15-3 to stop a three-game losing streak.

The outburst began in the top of the first, when Davie scored three runs. It would score in six of seven at-bats.

Hayden Potts (2-3, three runs, two RBIs, two walks), Ayden Sanders (2-4) and Josh Fisher (2-5, two runs) led the 12-hit attack with two hits apiece. Nate Barr (1-3, walk) homered. Ty Sain (1-1), Logan Allen (1-4, three RBIs), Blake French (1-3, walk), Bubby Byington (1-1, walk) and Josh Foster (1-1) had one hit each and Tanner Steinour had two RBIs.

Davie was equally good on the mound and in the field (zero errors).

Sanders worked five dominant innings, allowing two hits, one run and one walk while piling up eight strikeouts. The second reliever, Joshua Whitaker, struck out the side in order in the seventh as three arms combined on a three-hitter.
