Daredevils edge out Warriors in 3-2 win


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.

KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (July 8) – A late-inning rally sparked the Outer Banks Daredevils’ (15-3) to a 9-4 win over the Greenbrier Knights (5-10)Tuesday at First Flight Field.

The Knights answered by picking up a run in the top of the fifth inning to extend the lead back to two runs. However, the Daredevils were able to bang out seven hits off relief pitcher Jarrett Horton in the bottom of the seventh inning to score five runs to take a 6-3 lead. The Daredevils then added three more runs in the bottom of the eighth inning off three hits. The Knights did score a run in the ninth inning, but it was too late, as the Daredevils claimed their 15th victory of the season, 9-4.

Relief pitcher Scott Oberhelman picked up his first win of the season, going two innings without allowing a run. Oberhelman struck out two and allowed a pair of walks and a hit.

Horton was garnered with the loss, allowing a total of nine hits and eight earned runs in two innings. Horton also walked one and struck out one.
