Stallions Lose to South Stanly 6-1 at home

The young Stallions at QGHS lost to a junior and senior laden team from South Stanley.  In the third inning the Rowdy Rebel Bulls from South Stanley put up 4 runs on 5 hits including two extra base hits to take a 4-0 lead.

As it turned out this is all the scoring the Rowdy Rebel Bulls would need this day as their junior number two pitcher was completely shutting down the Stallions offensively until the bottom half of the sixth inning when the boys from Matthews finally broke through to avoid the shut-out.  With one out Jacob Beard singled up the middle for a hit,  Clay Thaxton worked a base on balls, and senior Kevin Corley with two outs smacked a line drive single to center field to drive in the Stallions only run.  The next batter sophomore Dillon Stout hit a rocket right at the center fielder 300 feet from home plate for the final out of the inning.

In the fifth inning South Stanly standout and power hitter senior Trey Lisk belted the first home run in the history of the new Stallion home stadium well over the left field fence for an estimated 380 foot towering solo home run.  It was a no doubter right off the crack of the bat from a fastball thrown by starting pitcher freshman Jacob Laplant who went five innings.  Lisk had another solid day at the plate leading his team with 2 RBI’s, going 3 for 4 with two extra base hits and a stolen base.

In the top of the sixth inning the Rowdy Rebel Bulls added an insurance run with three straight singles off of relief pitcher Kevin Corley to make the score 6-1.  Freshman Michael Ritch took over in the seventh and shut down South Stanley in order.

The Stallions next game will be against Gray Stone Day at home.  The QGHS baseball club defeated the Knights 21-16 in their last meeting earlier this month in a wild contest.
