Drifters overpower W&L Eagles

On Thursday, the Drifters won the first round of the annual Northern Neck war between the Beach and Washington & Lee, 17-0. Nick Graves went 3-3, with a grand-slam homer, a double, and a single that totaled five RBIs.

On the mound, over a period of five innings, Kamron Smith shut out the Eagles with five strikeouts, one walk, and three hits that totaled zero runs. As for the Eagles, they featured Danny Mundy, Juan Henry and Damar Smith.

In the top of the first inning, the Drifters capitalized on Mundy struggling to regain control of the plate. He was credited for six Drifter runs, including four walked-RBI runs, over a course of 40 pitches. Nick Graves got the offensive chain reaction started with a double that featured the first run. After an errant throw to second, Graves scored, giving the Drifters a 2-0 lead. With the momentum slipping into the Drifters’ hands and the bases loaded, Mundy would walk the next four batters, giving the visiting Drifters a 6-0 lead.

After the sixth Drifter run, Juan Henry was called in to relieve Mundy. However, Henry was served up with a Graves’ grand-slam homerun that extended the Drifter lead to 10-0.

Washington & Lee’s Terrin Dickerson attempted to start a rally in the bottom of the first with a lead-off double. Coupled with a diving catch made by Ryan Thomas, Smith retaliated by retiring the side and preserving the shutout.

In the top of the second inning, the Drifters pushed their lead to 11-0, as Henry walked Thomas for another Colonial Beach run.

Although Henry finally settled down in the top of the third inning by retiring three out of four players (giving up a single to Graves), the Drifters returned in the top of the fourth to score seven runs from the following events: Mikey Mothershead’s      RBI-single scored Carter Foster (12-0); Kamron Smith’s sacrifice RBI fly (13-0); Graves’ sacrifice RBI grounder (14-0); Carlos Bermudez’ RBI double (15-0); Trevor Delane’s RBI double (16-0); Nick White’s RBI single (17-0).

On Monday, the Drifters defeated Amelia in a double header, improving their record to 6-2, overall.
The Drifters will host Northumberland on April 22.
