Helms Tosses Shut Out at Pirates
Pinecrest 3, Lumberton 0
From robesonian.com – Missed opportunities are magnified during games pitting top teams.
When they happen against elite pitchers, it’s fatal.
Lumberton squandered its chance to move percentage points ahead of idle Richmond for first place in the Southeastern Conference on Thursday night, falling 3-0 at Pinecrest behind Tristan Helms’ complete-game performance.
Helms improved to 5-0 and held the Pirates without a run for the first time this season after escaping a pair of two-out jams including one that ended in the fifth when Bryan Carpenter was picked off first base with Daniel Oxendine at the plate.
“Pinecrest moved runners over and converted when they had chances and we didn’t,” Lumberton coach Paul Hodges said. “Our execution wasn’t there. We fell asleep on the bases and took the bat right out of (Daniel’s) hands. It’s tough to win ballgames when those kinds of things happen.” READ MORE.
