Pitcher Cole Gillis delivered a standout performance for South Mecklenburg, commanding the mound for five innings and limiting Ardrey Kell to just one earned run off four hits, with only one walk allowed. Gillis has been a model of consistency, maintaining a streak of six consecutive pitching appearances without surrendering more than two walks.


Offensively, the team turned to Cameron Bagwell for firepower, as he went 1-for-4 with a crucial home run and three RBI. In a pivotal moment during the game, Bagwell's third-inning home run not only extended South Mecklenburg's lead but also sparked a surge of energy and momentum for the Sabres. With the game hanging in the balance with just a 2-run advantage at the end of the 2nd inning, Bagwell's clutch hit ignited a fire within the team.
