Steamers Romp Redbirds, Win Big in 7-Inning Game


Edenton, NC – The Edenton Steamers defeated the Norfolk Redbirds 16-5 at Historic Hicks Field. The Clams have scored 31 combined runs in the last two games after scoring 15 last night against the Voyagers. The game featured a one hour and 38 minute rain delay, which shortened the game to a seven inning contest. Edenton improves to 8-4 overall and 5-4 in Premier Collegiate League play. 

The Steamers took complete control of the game in the first inning. Dylan Blazer started on the mound for the Redbirds and he struggled to find the zone. Tate Abbott grounded out to bring a run in early, then the walk-fest began. The right-hander gave out five consecutive free passes, with four walks and one hit batter. Blazer walked five batters in total in the inning and hit Hunter Cole with a pitch. One run scored on a passed ball and another on a wild pitch. He also walked in two runs with the bases loaded. Blazer only went 0.1 inning, walked five, and allowed six runs. 

The first inning onslaught continued when Brady Kenter took over on the mound. Chase Bruno welcomed Kenter to the game by hitting a two-run single to extend the lead to eight. Bruno scored later in the inning on a passed ball. When the dust settled, the Steamers had a 9-0 lead going into the second inning with only two hits.

Michael Allen started on the mound for Edenton and went three scoreless innings. After working out of a bases loaded jam in the first, Allen didn’t allow a hit over his final two innings. He allowed just one hit, walked four, and struck out four. 

The weather came on strong in the fourth inning, with a lighting delay followed by rain. After a lengthy stoppage, Chris Morris came into the game and was efficient. Morris went 3.0 innings, allowed one hit, three walks, and struck out seven. 

In the fourth, Tyler West smashed a triple off the wall to score Houston Wright, and then an errant throw out of play allowed West to come home and score. Later in the inning, Jeremiah Boyd hit his second home run of the season on a two-run blast. The Steamers ended up ahead 16-0 after a couple more passed balls. 

Travis Hamrick came into the game and the Redbirds were able to put five runs on the board. Gavin Mangus came into the game and got the final out on his only pitch to wrap up the game.

The Steamers have now won two in a row following a two game losing streak. The Clams will look to extend the streak to three for the third time this season. Edenton will take on the Clayton Clovers at 7:00 pm at Historic Hicks Field Saturday night.
