Area sports briefs: East, Carson baseball win

From staff reports
David Ijames’ liner off a diving third baseman’s glove scored Preston Troutman in the bottom of the seventh and lifted East Rowan to a tense 7-6 NPC victory against Northwest Cabarrus at Staton Field on Friday.
Troutman pitched five solid innings and allowed only one run, but sixth-place Northwest fought back from a 6-1 deficit to tie the game heading to the bottom of the seventh.
Zach Smith had two doubles, including a run-scoring two-bagger in the first inning to get East started. Ijames had a triple and three RBIs. Corbin Shive was 2-for-3 and knocked in two runs.
Jordan Phillips and Matt Greene knocked in two runs each for the Trojans.
Thomas Allen pitched the seventh for the Mustangs and was the winning pitcher.
n Carson shelled Statesville 12-2 for a five-inning NPC win.
Youngster Mitch Galloway pitched four strong innings for the victory. Carson had a nine-run fifth to end the game early.
Scott Ashby had three hits, including his second homer. Gunnar Hogan and Julio Zubillaga also had three hits. Joseph Basinger and Patrick Bearden delivered two hits apiece.
“Joseph has made some changes with his stance and came out of a slump with two rockets,” Carson coach Chris Cauble said. “Galloway gave the pitching staff a big lift. What pleased me most was he had no walks.”
n A.L. Brown ended a lengthy SPC dry spell with a 7-6 home win against Hickory Ridge. Brown led 3-0, trailed 5-4, then rallied to win.
Ryan Blackmon was the winning pitcher. He worked 51/3 innings and got relief help from Justin Kidd and Zach Wright, who got two strikeouts with runners at second and third in the seventh.
Zach Jones went 3-for-4. John Tuttle went 2-for-2. Wesley Summerlin went 2-for-3.
The Wonders cut their errors down to two in the victory.
Also credit the Wonders with a 13-4 non-league win against Lexington in a recent makeup game.
n Alex Grubb homered to back Jordan Hudson’s four-hitter as West Davidson wrapped up the CCC title with a 6-1 victory against East Davidson.
n Josh Hennessee and Donnie Burt powered homers as Lake Norman cruised to a 12-4 NPC victory against North Iredell.
