The HiToms make it 5 straight wins at Asheboro, taking down the Copperheads 8-1.
Once again the starting pitching made things easy for HPT, Isaac Campbell glided through 6 innings, needing only 84 pitches to punch out 7, only allowing a run on 2 hits. Ty Reginelli, Tyler Garam, and JC Sanner combined for 3 scoreless frames in relief. Asheboro has scored 1 run in the teams' last 2 meetings despite having scored the most runs in the CPL.
Every HiTom hitter reached base, including a couple 3-baggers. HPT has hit 4 triples in their last 3 games, Dylan Enwiller led off the night with one and Sam Taylor added another in the 7th, along with this web gem to rob the Copperheads of extra bases.
It can't be a HiToms game without a monster dinger though, and Austin Pharr sent one over the wall for the cherry on top for the final run, giving HPT their 8-1 lead.
The HiToms get a day off before seeing Asheboro again Wednesday, this time at Finch Field. The Copperheads will look to snap their 6 game skid as HPT tries to make it 6 straight wins.
