BOONVILLE — East Surry swept a nonconference baseball doubleheader against Starmount on Saturday to stay undefeated on the season.

In Game 1, the Cardinals defeated the Rams 10-1 and then East took the second game 8-2.

Tyler Marion was 2-for-5 at the plate with four RBIs in the first game. He also threw five innings and allowed just two hits. Scott Meredith pitched two innings in relief.

Blake Marion was 1-for-1 with two RBIs for the Cards.

In the second contest, Seth Brim pitched a complete game — allowing just two runs (one unearned). Brim also doubled and had two RBIs. Logan Sheets was 2-for-2 at the plate and Blake Marion had a double and two RBIs.

“The kids are playing well right now,” coach Barry Hall of East Surry said. “We are kind of a unique 1A team this year. We have four starting pitchers and two or three more that can throw. It’s a situation where we’ve got rotations of two or three at every position. We’ve got three kids I’m not afraid to put behind the plate, which is unheard of at a 1A school. That sounds more like a 2A, 3A or 4A school.”

East improved to 5-0 overall on the season with a game coming up at North Surry on Tuesday. The Greyhounds are 2-2.

Through five games this season, the Cards have scored a total of 40 runs while allowing just eight.

Also on Saturday, Mount Airy fell to Dudley by a 7-6 final score. The Bears trailed 4-0 and 5-1 before tying the game 5-5 in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Panthers scored two runs in the top of the seventh to push the lead to 7-5. Mount Airy scored one run in the bottom of the seventh, but came up just short.

Weather forecasts are predicting a wintry mix for the early part of the week, which could wreak more havoc on the area spring sports teams. Mount Airy (1-2) is scheduled to travel to North Wilkes on Tuesday.
