Ashley Varsity Baseball falls to Hoggard 6-2, but picks up road win over Greenville Rose 5-4

• 4/16 – Ashley 2 Hoggard 6 - Good pitching beats good hitting most times, and on Tuesday night, NC State-bound Joe O'Donnell of Hoggard silenced the Ashley bats for most of the contest. O'Donnell picked up 9 strikeouts and allowed only 1 Ashley hit, a single in the first inning by Dakota Perryman. After scoring 2 runs in the bottom of the first, the Screaming Eagles could not muster any offense the rest of the way. Pante Miliotis took the loss for Ashley, allowing 4 runs in 3+ innings. Matt Davis threw well in relief, keeping the Viking hitters in check. The final score was Hoggard 6, Ashley 2. The Eagles close out the second half of the conference schedule with 5 road games. The trek begins on Friday as we travel to Greenville to take on Rose High School at 6 PM. Also, a special thanks to all our seniors who played their last regular season home game tonight-- Brody Curran, Trey Eller, Clayton McGee, Sam Cavanaugh, Eric Eason, Peter Bourne, Matt Davis, Pante Miliotis, Cory Montgomery, and Justin Ray!!
• 4/19 – Ashley 5 Greenville Rose 4 - The Ashley baseball team did something they had never done on Friday night-- sweep Rose HS for the season series by winning for the first time ever in Greenville!!  Kam Johnson led off the game with a single, followed by another single by Eric Eason.  Shane Shepard then cleared the bases with a 3-run homer to right for a 3-0 lead.  Rose scratched a run across, before winning pitcher Sam Cavanaugh hit a 2-run homerun in the 6th to give us some cushion.  That was all the scoring we would need, as we came away with a 5-4 win, after Rose scored on a 2-run homer in the bottom of the 7th before Sam closed the door on them. The Eagles are now 12-5 on the season, 4-2 in the Mideastern.
