Farm Americans blast Greenville 18-1

After a poor offensive showing in its tournament opener, the Troy Farm Americans bounced back in a big way Saturday against Greenville.

The Americans pounded Greenville, winning 18-1 in four innings.

“We hit the ball well, and we played great defense,” said head coach Brett Stallworth. “I don’t think we had a single error in the infield tonight. It was just super defense.”

Troy scored seven runs in both the first and second innings, a huge improvement over Friday’s loss to Troy National that saw the team score only three times.

“Honestly, with the other night, I think these kids were nervous because they knew they were playing against their friends,” Stallworth said. “But, tonight, they were able to relax and just have fun.”

For Troy, Darryl Lee, Parker Sessions and Jackson Senn all scored three runs each. Walker Stallworth and Noah Prestwood added two runs each, while Ryan Ledford, Adrian Cardwell, Ben Reeves, Dalton Stephens and Coby Johnson all scored once.

Now, Troy will try to avoid elimination once again when it takes on Eufaula American Monday at 6 p.m.

“With these kids, once they’re up, they stay up for a while, so I think we’ll see more of the same Monday,” Stallworth said.
