Daredevils win fourth-straight game

 KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (June 4) – The Outer Banks Daredevils (4-1) continued their winning ways Wednesday by picking up a 4-3 win over the Greenbrier Knights (1-1) at First Flight Field.

 The Knights started the scoring in the second inning, but the Daredevils returned the favor in the bottom of the third inning with two runs of their own. Greenbrier battled back to put up runs in the fifth and the sixth innings, respectively. However, the Daredevils had a pair of runs cross the plate in the fifth inning to secure the lead.

 The Daredevils used six different pitchers to get the job done. Starting pitcher Parker Kelly went four innings, allowing three hits and an earned run while striking out four. Harry Ferguson, who was scheduled to start the game, came in to pitch a spotless ninth inning to pick up the save.

Josh Wyatt and Justin Lee each picked up RBIs for the Daredevils, while Devin Daniels, Tyler Franko and Chris Childress all scored runs. Outer Banks finished the game with six hits.

 The Daredevils return the action Thursday when they face the Tidewater Drillers. It will be Local Heroes Appreciation Night at the ballpark, where all local first responders will be recognized before the game. Also, Jonny Waters & Co. will be performing a special pre game mini concert beginning at 6:20pm and Skydive OBX will be parachuting into the ballpark with our game ball. Gates open at 6 p.m., with the first pitch following at 7:05.

Daredevils pick up lopsided win over Little Creek

KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (June 2) – It may have taken six innings for things to get started, but the Outer Banks Daredevils (3-1) picked up a crooked-looking win by the score of 8-0 over the Little Creek Stars (1-3) Monday night at First Flight Field.

Both teams had a combined three hits after five innings, but the Daredevils were able to pick up a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth. Leadoff man Josh Wyatt drilled pitch down the left field line, which was good for a standup double with one out. With two outs, Dylan Harvey took a pitch the opposite way to score Wyatt from second. Brett Johnson was up next, and took another pitch into right field to score Harvey, who swiped second. Harvey now has seven stolen bases in four games.

Outer Banks pick up six more runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, which proved to be more than insurance for the Daredevils. The Daredevils batted around the order and recorded five hits in the inning alone. Weston Glienke came on to pitch the top of the ninth inning, and had no problem closing the door on the Stars to keep the shutout intact.

James Walsh picked up the win for the Daredevils on the mound, throwing five innings of shutout ball while only allowing one hit. Walsh struck out two and issued two walks all on 61 pitches of work.

For the Stars, Steven Butt recorded the loss, going five innings, allowing five hits and two earned runs. Butt also struck out six while receiving no run support, as the Stars only collected two hits the entire game.

With the Daredevils now riding a three-game winning streak, they now turn their attention to the Greenbrier Knights, who travel the Kill Devil Hills to take on the Daredevils Wednesday, June 4th. The gates open at 6 p.m., with the first pitch scheduled for 7:05. It is Interfaith Community Outreach Appreciation Night at the ballpark, sponsored by Max Radio of the Carolinas and WVOD 99.1 The Sound.

Daredevils take nail-biting win over Warriors

KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (May 28) – The Outer Banks Daredevils (2-1) were able to pick up a win over the Virginia Warriors (0-1) Wednesday at First Flight Field by a final score of 4-3.

Virginia was able to pick up a run in the top of the first after an RBI-single from Taylor Erby scored Justin Erby from third. The Daredevils answered the bell in the bottom half of the frame, picking up two runs from Josh Wyatt and Justin Lee.

The Daredevils added another run in the sixth inning, after a sacrifice fly deep to center field by Wyatt scored Dylan Harvey, who crossed the plate three times tonight. Outer Banks added an insurance run in the eighth inning as well, which proved pivotal.

Up by three heading into the final frame, Virginia picked up a pair of runs on a two-run single by Corey King to cut the lead to one. The Warriors were able to load up the bases with two outs, but the Daredevils’ second baseman Wyatt made a spectacular play, backhanding a ground ball up the middle and throwing on to first to end the game.

After allowing three hits and a run in the first inning, the Daredevils’ Harry Ferguson settled down, facing the minimal 12 batters in the next four innings. Ferguson picked up his first win of the season, going five innings, giving up three hits, a walk and a run while striking out three.

Brooks Kirby of the Warriors was on the hook for the loss, going a full eight innings, allowing five hits and four runs, complimented with three strikeouts. The Warriors also stranded eight runners while committing five errors.

Harvey continued to set the table for the Daredevils, reaching base three times. He also stole two bases, bringing his season total to five in three games. Wyatt also got his second and third RBIs tonight.

The Daredevils are back in action Thursday when they take on the Greenbrier Knights at First Flight Field. Thursday is Dare County Youth Sports Appreciation Night at the ballpark, and there will be a pregame concert by Johnny Waters & Company. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm, with the gates opening at 6 p.m.
