Eagles Play New Hanover & Hoggard for 1st Place in the Conference
• 4/2 – Ashley 2 Reagan 12 - Ashley hosted the Reagan Raiders today in a non-conference endowment game. The Eagles used the game to get some pitchers some work who had not seen many innings on the mound. Reagan was up for the challenge as they pounded out 13 hits en route to a 12-2 win over Ashley. The Eagles could only muster 3 hits in the 5 inning game-- an infield single by Cole Slocum and a triple and homerun from third baseman Shane Shepard. Ashley will try to right the ship on Friday as they play the first of 4 conference games in 8 days, traveling to South Brunswick for a 6:00 game.
• 4/4 – Ashley 4 South Brunswick 1 - The Screaming Eagles baseball team took care of business in Boiling Spring Lakes this evening, handing the South Brunswick Cougars a 4-1 loss. Donovan Francis was the big contributor for Ashley, as he started on the mound and tossed all 7 innings, allowing only 1 hit while striking out 4. The Eagles tallied 8 hits for the game, including 3 by Evan Laverick and 2 by Kameron Johnson. Ashley has a big week coming up, as we host Laney Monday, then host Topsail Tuesday, followed by a game against New Hanover at Buck Hardee Field on Friday. All games are 6 PM starts. Ashley's record is now 8-4, 4-2 in the Mideastern conference.
• 4/7 – Ashley 12 laney 3 - For the last few games, the Ashley baseball team has been struggling to find their offensive rhythm. Today, they got things back on the right track, outhitting cross-town rival Laney 12-3, to secure an 11-1 victory. Cully Crott started on the bump for the Eagles, allowing 1 run on 3 hits, while only throwing 54 pitches in 5 innings, securing the win. He made one mistake with a fastball that was hit out of the park by Laney's Jake Cicero. Other than that, he pitched rather effectively. Cole Slocum had 3 hits and 2 RBIs, Donovan Francis had 3 hits and an RBI, William Noxon had 2 doubles and 2 RBIs, Shane Shepard had a hit and 2 RBIs, while Cully Crott, Kameron Johnson, and Evan Laverick each added a hit. Ashley's record is now 9-4, and they are 5-2 in the conference. Ashley's next game is a home game against the Topsail Pirates on Tuesday at 6 PM.
