Caps Win Streak at Three

Broughton easily defeated Enloe 20-6 on Senior Day when the Caps honored three – Dom Ford, John Woods and Noah Yarborough.  The Eagles had three singles and took advantage of several Broughton errors to score 5 runs in their first a bat.  Broughton answered by scoring 6 in the bottom of the first.  John Woods walked to set the Broughton career record and reached third on a double by Will Baldwin (Jr.).  Yarborough smoked a ball off the third baseman’s glove to score pinch runner Warren Grady (Soph.) and Baldwin.  Yarborough then scored on an error, Elias Kuhns (Soph.) walked and Mathis Dean (Fr.) was hit by a pitch, left fielder Dylan Lamm (Jr.) delivered a RBI single to score Kuhns, Will Collins (Jr.) walked and Ford’s single knocked in Dean and Lamm for a 6-5 Caps’ lead.  Enloe tied the score in the top of the 3rd.

Dean lead off the 3rd with a double and Lamm a nice bunt hit.  Both would later score.  With the bases loaded, Baldwin was HBP scoring Collins, Yarborough was interfered with by the catcher to score Grady, who was running for Woods, then Cam Epperson (Jr.) delivered a bases clearing three RBI triple down the right field line to make it 12-6.  Kuhns continued swinging his hot bat and singled to score Epperson then Lamm collected his third hit of the game by doubling in Kuhns to make it 14-6.  In the 4th: Ford singled and stole second, Woods had a RBI single, Baldwin was HBP again, Epperson singled to load the bases, Kuhns delivered again with a two RBI double, Sam Thompson (Jr.) walked to load the bases, Epperson scored on a wild pitch, George House (Jr.) had a nice RBI single, Eli DeJesus walked, and Ford knocked in Thompson to score the final run.  Highlights: all 16 Caps saw the field, Lamm had 3 hits, Kuhns and Epperson 3 RBI’s each, Woods walked 3 times to become the career walk leader and Epperson had a crowd-pleasing slide into third.  Another highlight had to be the bench-clearing welcome to greet House after his hit.  A great day to be able to honor the seniors – Dom, John and Noah, with a VICTORY!
