Scott Meredith pitched a complete game, Cody Ashburn had three hits, and visiting East Surry defeated North Surry 8-1 in nonconference baseball on Friday night.


With the win, the Cardinals kept their undefeated record going at 17-0.


Meredith allowed one unearned run off six hits, struck out 12 and didn’t walk a batter while going the distance. Nick Wilson took the loss for the Greyhounds.


Coming into the game, Meredith had a staggering ERA of 0.70. The six pitchers East has thrown this season have a combined ERA of 0.97.


“When you are doing that you are going to win a lot of games,” coach Barry Hall of East Surry said. “When I look at the stats, I just shake my head.”


East got three runs in the first inning, and North got on the board in the third. It was a 3-1 game until late, when East tacked on five more runs in the seventh.


Ashburn was 3-for-4 at the plate with an RBI, Seth Brim was 1-for-3 with an RBI, and Madison Chilton was 1-for-1 with a walk, two sac flies and two RBIs.


“Defensively we made an error today, which was only our 16th error of the year,” Hall said.


East remained ranked No. 1 in the latest Impact Baseball 1A poll, ahead of Voyager and Hayesville. Walkertown also in the Northwest Conference is currently ranked ninth.


The Cards host South Stokes in a nonconference contest on Monday. The Sauras (5-8 overall) lost to East 11-3 earlier this season in Walnut Cove. East hosts West Wilkes on Wednesday and then travels to Atkins Friday for a conference game.
