Daredevils win fifth game in a row against Virginia

KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (June 9) – In a back-and-forth game at First Flight Field Monday, the Outer Banks Daredevils (5-1) picked up a 9-8 win over the Virginia Warriors to extend their win streak to five games. It was Dare Education Foundation Appreciation Night, and DEF Executive Director Elisabeth Piff was on hand to throw out our first pitch.


The visiting Warriors got on the board first with a sacrifice fly in the top of the second inning, followed by another run in the third frame. The Daredevils returned the favor in the third and fourth innings with runs of their own. Virginia picked up another run in the sixth, while the Daredevils evened things up at three with a run of their own in the seventh inning.

 The eighth inning of Monday’s game was by far the most action-packed. Virginia scored four runs in the top half of the frame off two runs and an error. Going into the bottom half of the inning, things looked bleak for the Daredevils.


 However, that was not the case. The leadoff batter Josh Wyatt reached base on a walk, while Brett Johnson hit a single up the right side and Corey Ballard drew a walk to load the bases with no outs. Xavier Barrier also drew a walk to bring in a run. Tyler Franko and Graham Barnes each followed with singles to bring in a few more runs, and Dylan Harvey drove in Franko for the go-ahead run with a double to right-center field.

 Kyle Spruill, who came on to relieve Wes Carmichael in the eighth inning with two outs, picked up the win, after allowing a runner to reach third base with one out. Spruill stuck out the next two batters to finish off the Warriors.

In total, six Daredevils collected RBIs, while Harvey and Franko had two each. The Daredevils also collected 10 hits while stranding five runners.


The Daredevils put their five-game win streak on the line Tuesday when they host the Greenbrier Knights on Dare CASA Appreciation Night. The gates open at 6 p.m., with a pre game mini concert by the Sea Notes Barber Shop Quartet at 6:20. The Sea Notes will also be singing the National Anthem, with the first pitch scheduled for 7:05.

 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.

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.
