In their first conference action of the season, Bartlett Yancey Boys Baseball delivered big on Thursday, March 7, against Carrboro at home, snapping a three game losing streak.
A two-run first inning kicked off the momentum and BY never let up from there. After three innings, the score was 8-0 Bucs.
Two more runs in the fourth and one in the fifth sealed the deal with a 10-0 win called after five innings due to mercy rule.
Chase Johnson started as pitcher and pitched a fantastic game with 10 strikeouts and a complete game shutout.
Carrboro simply couldn’t put together any offense. Blake Solomon had four RBIs; Colby Solomon contributed three; and Micah New, Kris Lynn and Cody Barts each had one RBI in a hitting and base running clinic.
After starting the season 0-3, this was a big win for the Bucs and when asked about the victory, Head Coach Owen Wall said, “Great win tonight. Chase Johnson pitched a really good ballgame. Our guys came out with the mentality to win and that’s what they did. They’ve practiced long and hard and come off of a losing streak. [I] couldn’t be more proud and happy with this conference win.”
Bartlett Yancey Boys Baseball look to win again against Roxboro Community at Roxboro, tonight at 6 p.m.
