The Greenbrier Knights jumped out to an early lead, but was unable to hold on and lost 3-2 to the Outer Banks Daredevils at TowneBank OBX Park on Thursday.

The Daredevils jumped out to a 1 – 0 lead in the bottom of the first when Kyle Vidano (Averett University) lead off with a hit, stole second, took third by tagging up on a Jay Golliday (Campbell University) fly ball to right field, and scored on a wild pitch.

But the Knights came back, scoring a run in both the second and third, taking back the lead. JR Polak (St. Andrews University) reached on an error, went to second when Bryce Jones (UVA Wise) walked, went to third on a fielders choice, and scored on a ground out by KJ Lewis (Bryant & Stratton College). In the third inning, Kyle Bynum (Univ. of Mary Washington) got on base with a walk, a Mike Pezella (VA Wesleyan College) single moved him to second, went to third on a fielders choice, and scored on a bases loaded walk by Jacob Flora (Lynchburg College). Pezella lead all Knights hitters with his 2 for 5 night at the plate.

Knights starting pitcher Trey Celeta (Hampden-Sydney College) gave his team 6 strong innings, allowing only 4 hits and 2 runs while issuing 8 walks and striking out 7. Ryan VanAssche (Univ. of Mary Washington) took the loss in relief.

The Daredevils starter Chance DuCharme (Francis Marion University) pitched well in his no decision, and relievers Stephen Umplett (NC Wesleyan College), Josh Brooks (ECU), Kyle Spruill (COA), Colby Rudis (Frederick CC) and Eamonn Collins (Tusculum College) each threw an inning of relief, and Collins picked up the win.

With one out in the bottom of the ninth, Ryan Williams (Pitt CC) hits a single, went to second on a past ball, and scored on a walk off RBI single by Brent West (Urbanna University) giving the Outer Banks Daredevils the win.

 

Kyle Vidano (Averett University) got on base four times in the game for the Daredevils, including his first inning single. Jack Downum (Chowan University) went 1 – 2, with two walks; Damario Brown (Urbanna University) had a double and a single in his 2 – 4 outing; and Brent West (Urbanna University) went 2 – 5, including his walk off 9th inning single.

Daredevils win 6 – 2 over Drillers

July 25, 2016 – Kill Devil Hills, NC.

Six first-inning runs helped the Outer Banks Daredevils to a 6-2 win over the Tidewater Drillers at TowneBank OBX Park on Monday.

The Daredevils scored in the first on a wild pitch, an RBI single by Adam Whitacre (Radford U), an RBI double by Brent West (Urbanna U), a groundout by Damario Brown (Urbanna U), and a two-run single by Kyle Vidano (Averett U). The Daredevils were led by Kyle Vidano’s hitting. Kyle Vidano (Averett U) went 2-3 and drove in one.

Bailey Lipscomb (Chowan U) put together a nice outing. The Drillers managed just three hits off of Lipscomb, who allowed one earned run, walked three and struck out five during his five innings of work and picking up the win.

Daredevils reliever Colby Rudis (Frederick CC) got the hold with 2 innings of one run ball, and Eamonn Collins (Tusculum College) picked up the save for the Daredevils in his two innings of shut out ball.

Nate Matheson (Christopher Newport U) took the loss for the Drillers. He allowed six runs in three innings, walked four and struck out six.  Jack Jett (Old Dominion U) held the Daredevils hitless over two innings, allowed no earned runs, walked two and struck out two, and Robert Fitzwater (Patrick Henry CC) worked three innings, giving up no runs, on 3 hits with 4 strike outs.

A solo home run by Harry Brown (James Madison U) put the Drillers on the board in the top of the second, and an RBI single by Alex Abbey (Christopher Newport U) drove in Jordan Mason (Christopher Newport U) in the 7th inning, but in it was not enough to overcome the Daredevils big first inning.

Daredevils defeat Knights in 7 – 6 thriller

July 18, 2016 – Kill Devil Hills, NC

After eight lead changes in Monday’s game at TowneBank OBX Park, the Outer Banks Daredevils finally pulled out a 7-6 win over Greenbrier Knights.

The bottom of the first saw the Daredevils take an early lead, 1-0 when Jay Golliday (Campbell U) singled, stole second base, and then scored on an RBI single by Adam Whitacre (Radford U). The Daredevils tied the game in the third on an RBI single by Jack Downum (Chowan U) that scored Whitacre.

The lead was the Daredevils’ to lose after sixth inning. More runs came home on a sacrifice fly by Adam Whitacre (Radford U) an RBI single by Jay Golliday (Campbell U),  and a bases loaded walk by Chris Childress (Urbanna U) that scored Ryan Creps (Canisius College) and gave the Daredevils the lead for good.

Adam Whitacre (Radford U) racked up three RBIs on two hits for the Outer Banks Daredevils. He singled in the first and third innings, and hit a sac fly in the sixth inning. Ryan Creps (Canisius College) went 2 – 5, with a double, a run scored and a stolen base. Chris Childress (Urbanna U) went 1 – 3, with a triple, a run scored and an RBI. Jay Golliday (Campbell U) went 2 – 5, with 2 RBI and 2 runs scored.

Outer Banks Daredevils pitching and strong defense held off the Greenbrier Knights, as the Knights were unable to overcome a two-run sixth inning deficit. The Knights offense was powered by Chase Counts (Hampden-Sydney College) who went 2 for 6 with a run scored, and Garrett Marchand (James Madison U) who went 2 – 4 with a run scored. Jake Fletcher (Coastal Carolina U) went 1 – 4 with an RBI and Spencer Willis (Virginia Wesleyan College) went 1 – 5. The Knights scored one run in the seventh but was not able to take the lead back.

Bailey Lipscomb (Chowan U) started for the Daredevils, pitching 5 1/3 strong innings, giving up 3 hits and 2 earned runs, while striking out 6 Knights batters. Stephen Umphlett (NC Wesleyan College) recorded the win for the Daredevils. He tossed two-thirds of an inning of shutout ball. He struck out one, walked one and surrendered one hit. Eammon Collins (Tusculum College) threw the final 2 2/3 innings for the Daredevils, recording the save, giving up 1 hit, no runs and striking out 6.

Joshua King (Bethel College) got the start for the Knights, and went 5 innings, yielding 6 hits, 4 runs while striking out 7. Jeremy Blasiole (Lynchburg College) took the loss for the Knights. He lasted just three innings, walked four, struck out three, and allowed three runs.
