WILMINGTON — The Ashley varsity baseball team traveled to South Central High School in Winterville for its season opener on Wednesday, and struggled to get things going during the game. The Falcons beat the Screaming Eagles by a score of 11-3.

Sophomore Tyler McNeill started on the mound for Ashley, throwing three innings, and allowing five runs while striking out two. He was followed by Josh Kidd, Callahan Klos, and Kason Valentine.

Ashley struggled at the plate, mustering only three hits on the night. John Webb, Joe Barbera, and Rocco Farmintino had a hit apiece, Rocco’s being an RBI double to the right-center gap. Michael Phillips reached base four times, going 0-0 with four walks.

The Eagles made several miscues in the field, totaling five errors in the game. Ashley looks to clean things up and get on the winning side on Friday as they head to Richlands High School for a junior varsity/varsity double-header. JVs play at 4 p.m., followed by the varsity at 6 p.m..
