Garner sweeps Senior Day wins over the Rams

Brett Banks pitches a stellar 6.1 innings with 10Ks to power Garner to the 4-3 Senior Day win over Rolesville. The Trojans (16-7) win their 8th straight to take over first in the GNRC. Garner sends the Class of 2017 with another win: Eric Rodriguez, Ryan Wheeler, Noah Giroux, Noah Gallogly and Wellington Guzman. Giroux and Nolan McLean sacrifice flies give the good guys 2-0 lead in the 4th. While Banks was cruising with 2-hitter and piling up nine strikeouts in the first 5 innings, Gallogly laces RBI single, part of his 2-for-3 day, to score Graham Wilkins for 3-0 lead. Banks improves to 5-2 on the season. Winston-Salem State signee Guzman knocks in Xavier Bussey for the eventual winning run. Chris Roddenberry relieves Banks for an out in the 7th & McLean gets the final out to elevate Garner to 10-3 and the top of the conference. The rematch for the conference title is Thursday at Rolesville 4PM.
