Caps started strong, scoring 2 in the bottom of the first.  Soph. Joe Bialkowski walked and was moved over to second by a Sr. Josh Clark sacrifice bunt then Jr. Will “Big Fly” Cooper stroked a 2 run blast to right center (3rd HR of the season).  In the third, Broughton posed another threat with Cooper drawing a walk. Pinch runner, Jr. Ziquine Hopkins, stole second and moved over to third on Sr. Brandon Saunder’s single to right center.   Hopkins was unable to reach home on two infield put outs and Broughton missed a golden opportunity to recapture the lead.

W. Johnston took advantage of the missed opportunity and the Caps only error tying the game 2-2 in the top of the 4th. Starting pitcher Charlie Goode pitched 4 strong innings with 2 strikeouts and three hits giving up 2 unearned runs in the top of the 4th.  Bialkowski took control of the mound for the start of the 5th,  with an excellent performance limiting W. Johnston to just one hit and no runs in 3 innings of work.

Sr. Pierce Jensen got the call to pitch the 8th inning, after surrendered a solo HR to the first batter two additional earned runs scored off a double for a 3 run top of the 8th for W. Johnston. The Caps failing to muster a rally in bottom of the inning ended the game with a losing score of 5-2.

Next game is Monday at East Wake 4:30pm.
