Trojan bats pound the Rams in regular season finale

Trojans 5-run 5th inning puts Rolesville away 14-4 in run-rule shortened GNRC contest. Garner, 9-5 in the conference are awful guests for the Rams Senior Day as they pound out 17 hits. Colin Pippin lead off triple opens the game, starting a 4-run 1st after Xavier Bussey RBI single. After Rolesville scores 2 in the 2nd, Jack Elliott triples to score Cody Jones & then scores on the front end of double-steal with Bussey. Ryan Wheeler follows with an RBI double for 7-2 Trojan lead. Chris Roddenberry relieves starter Brett Banks in the 3rd. Rolesville scores an unearned run but Roddenberry K & terrific running catch by center fielder Trevor Blalock ends the inning 7-3 in favor of the good guys. Bussey 2-RBI double in the 4th makes it 9-3. Roddenberry records his two strikeouts but surrenders a sacrifice fly in the 4th. The Trojan bats explode in their 5th with Wheeler opening the inning with triple off the right field wall. Noah Gallogly rips 2-RBI double to deep center & Wellington Guzman RBI doubles him in. Elliott sac fly plates Guzman for the 10-run lead and send the Trojan faithful home very happy. Garner awaits their NCHSAA seed, scheduled to be released Monday AM, with first round game Wednesday afternoon.
