North Surry piled on a total of five runs in the sixth inning Wednesday to defeat North Stokes, 7-1.
The Greyhounds got on the scoreboard in the second inning. Jacob Pelfrey led off with a single and stole second base. Teammate Dustin Johnson drove him home on a sacrifice fly. In the fourth, Pelfrey once again singled and stole second yet again. Ryan Stone’s sacrifice fly then scored Pelfrey to give North a two-run lead.
In the sixth, the win was set up as Greyhound Kyle Moser doubled and Pelfrey followed that with a single. Hound Austin Chandler singled and freshman Nick Wilson singled. Stone was walked as was Johnson. Alex Ratcliff singled and Caleb Whittaker walked in the inning which saw 10 sent to the plate before the dust had settled.
Gammons said Wilson pitched his first varsity game in the outing after being moved up from the JV ranks. He was the winning pitcher and went the distance.
“Nick pitched well tonight,” commented Coach Gammons. “He had a complete game, striking out eight and he walked three.”
According to Gammons, Pelfrey put in a solid performance at short stop with several good plays. Gammons also complimented Chandler’s efforts, which were highlighted by fielding a deep shot on the third base side and firing the ball in to get the man out with a really nice throw.
The Greyhounds are scheduled to host Mount Airy Friday. Jayvee play is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. with the varsity game following at 7:30.
