Post 58 runs winning streak to eight!

MT. OLIVE - Rocky Mount Post 58 brought out not one, not two, but seven pitchers to the mound to face Wayne County Thursday night in a non-conference American Legion Area I East affair played at Mount Olive College. 

Post 58 came away with an 8-4 win to bring its winning streak to eight. It will face Edenton Post 40 in a doubleheader Saturday at Nash Central's Dawg Pound beginning at 5 p.m.

Chase Johnson started, went just one inning, and was then followed by Cam Webb, Jeremy Lucas, Trellis Ashley, Matthew Berry, Stevie Williams and Spiers Miller. Johnson and Ashley were the only ones who pulled more than an inning of work.

At the plate, Miller was a standout as he went 2-for-5 with an RBI, while Abel Hernandez and Miller also added two hits. Both teams had eight hits apiece, but Post 58 threw in five stolen bases.
