Salamanders Have Record Night
The Holly Springs Salamanders set a franchise record for hits and runs scored in a game as they banged out 21 hits and scored 17 runs en route to a 17-7 thrashing of the Fayetteville SwampDogs on Monday night at the North Main Athletic Complex.
Trailing 3-0 after the top of the first, Holly Springs (5-12) scored six times in the opening inning, highlighted by a Cody Roberts two-run double down the right field line and after the opening frame, the Salamanders held a 6-3 edge.
After scratching out a run on back-to-back doubles from Jake Washer and Bryce Harman, the Salamanders exploded for eight runs over the fourth and fifth inning thanks to a pair of Fayetteville (5-12) errors in the fourth and in the fifth, Danny Sheehan launched a three-run home run over the left field wall to give the Salamanders a 15-4 lead.
The SwampDogs added a pair of runs in the sixth and one in the eighth but it wasn't enough to overcome the Salamanders onslaught as Holly Springs cruised to the victory.
TJ Rogoszewski picked up his second victory of the season, working five inning and allowing four runs on nine hits for Holly Springs.
The 17 runs and 21 hits usurp the previous franchise high of 16 runs and 20 hits set on July 9, 2016 in a road win over the Wilson Tobs.
Holly Springs returns to action on Tuesday night when they travel to J.P. Riddle Stadium to battle the SwampDogs, first pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m. The Salamanders return home on Wednesday night for a 7:00 first pitch against the Wilson Tobs, tickets can be purchased by visiting SalamandersBaseball.com.
