KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (July 17)
After a rain-shortened week, the Outer Banks Daredevils (17-4) defeated the Virginia Warriors (0-12) by a mark of 3-2 Thursday at First Flight Field.
The Warriors put the first tally on the board in the top of the second inning thanks to an RBI-single by Zach Shulte that scored Zach Bach from second to take a 1-0 lead.
The Daredevils used a big fourth inning to seal the win, scoring all three runs in the bottom half of the frame. Xavier Barriere drew a walk with the bases loaded to bring in the first run, while Josh Wyatt followed that up with a two-run single to make it a 3-1 game. However, Wyatt was thrown out at second, trying to stretch his single into a double.
The Warriors added a run in the fifth inning to bring the score within one, which was the final run scored of the 3-2 contest.
Scott Oberhelman earned his second win of the season, going five strong innings, allowing six hits and striking out seven. After playing left field for eight innings, Evan Voliva took the bump, striking out two in the top of the ninth inning to convert his second save opportunity of the season. Mike Parmentier got the loss for the Warriors, going three and two-thirds innings, allowing all three runs and three hits, while striking out one.
