HiToms Win a Tense Game in the Snake Pit

4 straight wins.

The HiToms were feeling good about themselves after a thrilling 10 inning win at McCrary Park in Asheboro Thursday night. Burl Carraway came into the game in the 8th inning after a series of singles from the Copperheads scored 4 runs to tie the game at 8. Runners on second and third. Nobody out.

Ground out. Strikeout. Strikeout. Game still tied. He held the Snakes scoreless in the 9th, and then after a Manuel Lopez triple and a throwing error scored 3 runs to give the HiToms the lead in the 10th, Carraway found himself in the same position.

With two runs in already in the bottom of the 10th, the tying run was on third, the winning run on second. No out.

Strikeout. Intentional walk. Strikeout. Strikeout. Win.
