Hobbton’s Jackson McLamb scores on a wild pitch.


The Hobbton Wildcat baseball team got its second win at home Wednesday evening with a 10-0 win over Union. It was all Hobbton from the start, as they jumped on the Spartans and never looked back.

Gage Herring of Hobbton faced just 15 batters in the shortened game due to the run rule, allowing no hits and no walks.

Hobbton’s head coach Chris Carroll was pleased with the team’s performance.

“Gage Herring pitched a perfect game with 15 strike outs. It was a great game; a superior night,” attested Carroll. “The guys really played with intensity and played hard. They also practiced hard leading up to the game.”

Daniel Villagomez had an inside the park home-run for Hobbton as well, on a night in which they seemingly could do no wrong.

On Monday, the Wildcats traveled to Goldsboro and picked up a 14-0 decision in their first game. Jackson McLamb pitched and finished with 14 strike outs, in another impressive pitching performance for the Wildcats.

Union stats were unavailable at press time.
