Eagles Baseball Season Ends with Extra Inning loss to Pinecrest


he Ashley baseball team traveled to Southern Pines on Tuesday for the first round of the baseball playoffs, and took a tough loss, losing to Pinecrest by a score of 7-6 in extra innings.  Cully Crott started on the mound for Ashley, and pitched into the 6th inning, holding a 6-2 lead.  The game became tied after a grand slam by a player who was involved in a controversial play 3 innings earlier.  The game stayed tied until the bottom of the 9th, when the Pinecrest batter squeezed the game winning hit just inside the 3rd base bag to score the winning run.  Shane Shepard had 2 hits for the Eagles, Cully Crott had 4 hits and an RBI, Dakota Perryman had 3 hits and an RBI, and Cole Slocum added 2 hits for the Eagles, who wrap up their season with a 16-8 record.  Thanks for your support for the team this year!!
