The SoCal Shepherds took down the Orange County Legends on Friday by a score of 10-3.
Jacob Brothers (Grove City CC) started the game for the Shepherds and continued his string of fantastic performances to start the year. Brothers went four innings, allowing one run on one hit and recorded one strikeout on the day. The one run allowed today was the first earned run allowed by Brothers this season and his era now sits an even 1.00.
Nine of the ten offensive starters for the Shepherds reached base on the day, and the lone man who failed to reach base, Sawyer Smith, had a two-RBI day with a pair of sac flies. Shortstop Sebastian Dunn (UNC Ashville) continued his hot stretch with two doubles and an RBI. Will Cline (Centre College) joined Dunn with a two-hit day of his own, and also scored two runs.
Emry Jackson, Chad Ragland (2), Noah Reitmeyer, Tanner Smith, and Nathan Weatherly all had RBI on the day in addition to Sawyer Smith and Dunn.
The Legends would score their additional two runs on solo home runs in the 6th, but Nick Lycett’s (Fullerton JC) scoreless 7th sealed the game for the Shepherds as they picked up their third win of the year.
