Baseball drops fourth straight


Harnett Central's Brian Taylor (W) struck out 13 West Johnston hitters on Tuesday night and tonight he went four strong innings striking out six to give the visiting Trojans a 10-4 win over the home standing set of Trojans.

Harnett Central (6-4, 5-3) scored a pair of runs in the first inning as they put together four hits (three of them infield singles) as Jonathan Bayles and Ty Wheelin collected RBI's to give Central a 2-0 advantage.

Garner (5-8, 3-4) cut the lead in half during their at bat in the second inning. Taylor Stephens singled to begin the inning and was moved to second on a Connor Torruella sacrifice bunt and after Will Norris moved Stephens to third, the sophomore came home when a balk was called and after two it was 2-1 Harnett Central.

Central came back in the third with a run to make it 3-1, but Garner answered right back with another run to cut the lead to one as Brandon Tant came around to score.

However, the fourth inning was not kind to the Trojans as Harnett Central scored five runs all against Norris (L 3-3) as he was chased after just 3 1/3 innings allowing eight runs.

The Trojans came right back in the bottom of the inning as they once again cut the lead in half as Brett Bailey homered over the foul pole in left for a two-run shot, his first homer of the year.

Heading to the fifth inning, mother nature was ready to halt play as a lighting storm suspended the game for 30 minutes.

The delay didn't help Garner as Harnett Central added two runs in the top of the seventh and held on to beat the Trojans 10-4.

Garner will be back in action on Tuesday when they host West Johnston beginning at 7:00.
