Highlights were few and far between when Davie’s JV baseball team had back-to-back games against Reagan.

In two games, Davie only managed eight hits and six different pitchers combined to hand out 18 walks. The result: Reagan swept Davie by scores of 9-5 and 14-5.

In Pfafftown on March 26, the Raiders had a 7-0 lead before Davie got on the board. The War Eagles scored two runs in both the sixth and seventh innings, but the damage had been done in the 9-5 decision. Davie’s three hits came from Hayden Potts (1-3), Logan Allen (1-3) and Luke Foster (1-1, double).

Four Davie arms limited the Raiders to four hits, but that couldn’t make up for 10 walks. Davie only made one error, but the free passes helped Reagan score in the first, second, third and sixth innings.

Three days later at home, Davie watched the Raiders score four runs in the top of the first. They added five-spots in the third and fourth, when the game ended via the two-hour time limit.

Ayden Sanders paced Davie’s offense with two hits in three at-bats. Blake French (1-3), Allen (1-2, walk) and Bubby Byington (1-1, walk) had the other hits for Davie.

In four at-bats, Reagan blended seven hits with eight walks and roughed up all three Davie pitchers.

Davie entered spring break with records of 3-5 overall and 1-4 in the Central Piedmont Conference.
