• Salisbury lost 2-0 to East Davidson in CCC play on Thursday at Robertson Stadium.
Nick Williams (2-1) pitched the shutout for the Golden Eagles. He held the Hornets (1-7, 0-1) to four hits, including three by Chance Bowden.
“We struggled early with walks and hit batters, but we mixed in some strike outs and nice defensive plays to hold them to two runs,” Salisbury coach Scott Maddox said. “We just couldn’t solve Williams. He did a great job off changing speeds and getting us out front, and his defense played flawless behind him. Walks got them their two runs, but when you don’t score it kind of makes the walks irrelevant.”
Salisbury hurlers Riley Myers and Harrison Smith held the Golden Eagles to three hits.
“Harrison came in and pitched his best game as a Hornet,” Maddox said. “If he continues to pitch like that, we’ll be OK.”
Williams doubled home one run, and another run scored on a passed ball.
