RAMSEUR — Samuel Murchison and Mason Canoy combined for a three-hit shutout here on Sunday night at Grady Lawson Field to spark Eastern Randolph to a 5-2 win in Area III Northern Division play while also snapping an eight-game skid for Post 81.

Murchison went three innings and was almost perfect, allowing just a walk while striking out five Post 53 batters in the start.

Canoy came in and allowed three hits, two unearned runs, and two walks while fanning three to get the win.

Unlike what had been the norm of late, Eastern Randolph started fast and played with the lead the entire contest.

Post 81 plated a run in the first inning behind a leadoff single by Chris Morgan to left who later scored on a sacrifice fly to Connor Murphy.

Eastern Randolph went up 4-0 with three runs in the bottom of the second behind singles from Nyk Foland and Cade Snotherly, Morgan being hit by a pitch, Tyler Campbell plating Foland with a sacrifice fly, and Murphy and Canoy following with RBI-singles.

After yielding an unearned run in the fourth, Post 81 answered with a run in the bottom of the fifth behind singles from Canoy and Andrew Poteat.

Leading 5-1, Canoy would allow a run to Greensboro in the top of the seventh before closing out the contest.

Snotherly was 2-for-2 with a run and a walk to lead Eastern Randolph offensively while Canoy was 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI, Murphy 1-for-2 with a sacrifice fly and two RBI, Morgan 1-for-3 with two runs and reaching after being hit by a pitch, Foland 1-for-3 with a run, and Murchison 1-for-2.

Adam Weber was 1-for-2 with an RBI to pace Greensboro while Clay Dilday was 1-for-3 with a run, and Cody Donnell 1-for-4.

Dilday took the loss on the mound for Post 53 after going five innings and yielding nine hits, five runs (four earned), and no walks while whiffing six.
