Asheville Pound Kannapolis in 23-3 Rout

asheville 4

The scoring barrage for the Tourists started in the top of the second inning when they scored three runs on a bases loaded walk by Max George and a two run single off the bat of Dom Nunez.

In the third, the hits kept coming as Asheville plated six runs highlighted by a two-run triple from Yonathan Daza, an RBI single from Ryan Stephens and a three-run home run from Max White.

Stephens drove in another run with a double in the fourth, and then two innings later the Tourists piled on three more runs on a bases clearing double from Nunez to extend the rout to 13-0.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Intimidators finally got on the board scoring three runs, on an RBI double from Ryan Plourde and a two-run single off the bat of Michael Suiter.

But that would be all for Kannapolis as the Tourists continued to pile on the runs with six in the eighth on an RBI double from Shane Hoelscher, a sac fly from Roberto Ramos scoring White and a grand slam from Jairo Rosario.

Four more runs in the ninth, a two-run double from Hoelscher and a two-run home run from Ramos, capped off the scoring for the Tourists.

An uneventful bottom of the ninth followed and Asheville enjoyed a lopsided victory and remain in first place, two games up on the Augusta GreenJackets.
