Warriors drop opener
at New Hanover
WILMINGTON -- Eastern Wayne's Trey Johnson had three hits, including an RBI as the Warriors opened the season with a 9-2 loss at New Hanover High School in downtown Wilmington on Monday.
Eastern Wayne (0-1) trailed just 3-1 in fifth, when the Wildcats scored on a double-play to take a 4-1 lead. New Hanover eventually pulled away with a five-run sixth.
Airlon Vinson picked up the loss for the Warriors, yielding three hits and three-earned runs in four innings of work.
The Warriors staff surrendered 10 walks on the game and walked home three runs.
"We just couldn't pitch well after Vinson. It's early, and we've got some boys who can pitch," Eastern Wayne coach Jabo Fulghum said. "But when you walk 10, you are going to lose. It's the first day and we are going to bounce back."
New Hanover's Chandler Chambers picked up the win, while Daniel Barker paced the Wildcats (1-0) at the plate with two hits, including a double and an RBI.
Jesse Lancaster added an RBI for the Warriors, who entertain the defending Class 4-A N.C. High School Athletic Association champion Greenville Rose on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
