“Corey’s (Davis) swing was huge early and that was a big two-out hit for us,” said Lee head coach Mark Brew. “Offensively, we did an excellent job of extending the lead today.”
Hall picked up his fifth win of the season against no losses, allowing one run on three hits in his seven innings of work. The junior hurler struck out 12 hitters, walking four.
