South Stokes scored four runs in the first inning and spoiled North Surry’s Senior Night 8-4.
The Greyhounds managed just two runs through the first five innings, then rallied to try to make a game of it.
“We dug a hole too big early,” said Coach Travis Gammons. “We had several uncharacteristic errors in the first inning.” Those miscues allowed the Sauras to jump out to a 4-0 lead.
The Hounds did push a run across in the first and another in the third, but they still trailed 8-2 in the middle of the sixth as scattered showers passed over.
The Hounds scored twice, but left the bases loaded.
In the seventh inning, Nick Wilson drew a walk, and Nolan Stanley bounced a single up the middle to put two aboard with none out.
However, the Sauras then tightened down and struck out the next three batters to end the game.
Before the game, North Surry honored Tyler Clement and Caleb Thomas, two seniors who have been in the program all four years.
These two young men continue to work hard every day in practice, said Gammons. He and his coaching staff appreciate everything these two have done for North Surry baseball.
Next up is a road game at Forbush on Friday.
