Walkertown took advantage of some sloppy play early to beat Mount Airy 13-2 in five innings Friday.


The Granite Bears committed three errors and several wild pitches in the first three innings. The Wolfpack held a 10-0 lead before the Bears had even reached the bottom of their lineup.


In the top of the first, Walkertown got a lucky hop to put a man aboard. Three pitches reached the backstop to allow Hunter Wolfington to circle around to home.


Robbie Robledo and Kerry Rice followed with singles. A wild pitch moved the runners over a base.


Bryce McTeer struck out on a ball that got away from the catcher to allow Robledo to score.


Shortstop Kenny Overfelt then booted a grounder, allowing Rice to score. Third baseman David Sparger then mishandled a grounder to allow a fourth run to score.


In the second, Walkertown’s Justyn Royall walked and went to third on a double by Travis McCormick. A groundout scored one run for a 5-0 margin.


A single to right by Cole Sell made it 6-0. A walk and a couple of wild pitches allowed Sell to score for a 7-0 lead.


In the third inning, Walkertown added three more runs for a 10-0 lead.


The Bears finally broke through in the fourth inning.


Sparger hit a fly ball to right that was misplayed. Then Logan Holder hit a single to center to score Sparger. The outfielder misplayed the ball to allow Holder to go all the way to third.


Corbin Welch singled home Holder to make it 10-2. Unfortunately that would be the only runs of the night for the home team.


In the top of the fifth, Sell hit a double down the left field line to score two runners. He would later score when a fly ball to left went over the fielder’s head. That made it 13-2.


When the Bears failed to cut the lead under 10, the game ended early on the 10-run mercy rule.


The Bears recently had been on a four-game winning streak, but now two games against Walkertown and one against East Surry has resulted in a three-game losing streak.


The Bears fell to 6-7 and 3-4 in the Northwest Conference. Walkertown improved to 11-2, 5-2 in the Northwest.


East Surry leads the league with a perfect 7-0 mark. Walkertown is second, and Bishop at 4-3 is third.
