04/29/2014

Ashley's Cully Crott had another gutsy performance on the mound tonight, scattering 4 hits over 6 1/3 innings, striking out 8, and most importantly, picking up the win over Laney by a score of 6-3.  The Eagles struck first in the top of the first, when with two outs, Cully started a short rally with a double to left.  Dakota Perryman promptly singled through the left side, scoring courtesy runner Jordan Fentress.  In the top of the second, Kameron Johnson singled, advanced to second on a Donovan Francis groundout, then scored on an error by the shortstop on a hard hit ball by Alex Highsmith. Alex advanced to third on a passed ball, before scoring on a sacrifice fly by Evan Laverick.  The Eagles scored 3 more in the fifth on a Highsmith walk, Laverick sac bunt, another Crott double to left, and another Perryman single to left.  Francis came in to pitch in relief, securing the last 2 outs of the game for the win.  The Eagles will play for at least a share of the conference title at home Thursdayagainst West Brunswick.  Game time is 6:00, and it is Senior Recognition Night! Please come support these young men in their quest for a conference championship!!  Ashley's record is 15-5, 8-3 in the conference.
