Hickory swept a doubleheader today.
In the opener, Grant Wolfram started and had four innings of one run ball before turning it over to Zak Kent. Kent threw three innings of shutout ball, walking no one, allowing two hits and striking out four. He has yet to allow a run on the season.
Offensively, Blaine Crim had three hits, Jake Guenther had a single and a double, Jose Acosta had a single and a homer, and Frainyer Chavez homered.
In Game 2, Avery Weems struck out eight in four innings of work, allowing two runs on five hits, not walking anyone. Seth Nordlin threw three shutout innings, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out four. David Garcia homered.
Marc Church threw two innings for Down East and struck out three, allowing no runs or walks and one hit. The Ducks only got three hits — one was by Luisangel Acuna, one by Keithron Moss, and one by Xavier Valentin. They drew a ton of walks, though, including three by Dustin Harris and two by Thomas Saggese. Jayce Easley stole four bases, Dustin Harris and Keithron Moss each stole two bases, and Thomas Saggese stole one.
Jason Bahr started for Round Rock and had a rough go of it, allowing 7 runs in 3 IP. Jacob Lemoine threw two scoreless, striking out two. Ryder Ryan struck out four batters in 1.1 IP with a walk.
Andy Ibanez was a triple shy of the cycle. Leody Taveras had two hits and a walk. Eli White had two hits and two walks. Curtis Terry had three hits.
