PITTSBORO — Tyler Johnson went 5.1 innings here on Friday afternoon and was supplemented on the mound by relievers Dylan Hitt and Michael Posse to lead Northwood to a tough 4-3 victory over Union Pines.

Northwood improved to 8-0 overall with the win while Union Pines dropped to 5-3.

The Chargers jumped in front 2-0 right off the bat as a two-out walk by Brandon Crabtree, a base hit from Deuce Powell, and a two-run single from Beau Weathers plated two runs.

In the fourth, Northwood sent across two more when Johnson singled and Hitt brought him home with an RBI-single. Michael Posse would smack a base hit and later score later in the inning to tally what would eventually be the winning run.

Johnson kept the Vikings at bay until the top of the fifth when the visitors plated a run to close the deficit to 4-1.

Union Pines scratched for two more runs in the top of the sixth, but Hitt would come in to get the final out of the sixth on a strikeout, and Posse closed the game out after the Vikings had put runners on with a hit and a walk in the top of the seventh.

Johnson allowed seven hits, three runs (two earned) and two walks in the win.
