Prep Baseball: Davie blanks Salisbury

Staff report

SALISBURY — Davie County didn’t get its baseball season started until Monday, but the War Eagles are making up for lost time.

Davie had its second well-pitched win in two days, beating Salisbury 7-0 at Robertson Stadium.

“We didn’t exactly tear the cover off the ball,” Davie coach Bob Byerly said. “But we played Earl Weaver ball. We hit a couple of no-doubters with men on base.”

Davie had only five hits off three Salisbury hurlers, but Ryan Harrell hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Brandon Lankford hit a three-run homer in the third.

Harrell also pitched four innings, striking out four and allowing three hits.

Riley Myers was the starting pitcher for the Hornets (3-1) and took the loss. The Hornets had started 3-0 for the first time in coach Scott Maddox’s 15 seasons.

Myers and Ryan Jones pitched three innings each.

Alex Yang had two of Salisbury’s four hits.

Davie (2-0. 1-0 CPC) has a home conference game scheduled against Reagan on Wednesday. Salisbury is scheduled to play at Forbush on  Thursday.
