ROCKY MOUNT — Senior Ches Lamm earned the win on the mound and drove in what proved to be the winning run as Hunt opened 3-A Big East Conference varsity baseball play with a 4-3 victory at Northern Nash on Tuesday.

Lamm improved to 3-0 as he went five innings, yielding three runs on five hits and five walks while striking out eight. His fifth-inning single scored teammate Parker Lamm, who had doubled, with the winning margin. Northern Nash (7-3, 0-1 Big East) reached Lamm for two runs in the bottom of the inning but reliever Alex Nguyen allowed just one base runner over the final two innings to notch his first save of the season.

Spencer Boykin drilled a solo home run in the top of the first for the Warriors (8-2, 1-0 Big East). In the third, junior Jacob Page, who was 3-or-4, slapped an RBI-single and Hunt added another run on Ches Lamm’s grounder.
