Indians hit two HRs, overcome 6-0 hole

April 26, 2011

St. Stephens couldn’t have scripted a better ending.

Trailing 6-0 to Newton-Conover, the Indians’ baseball team rallied to score 12 runs, including a dramatic two-run homer by center fielder Phillip Carroll in the sixth inning. The Indians (6-13) bounced back from a 7-2 loss Monday to Hickory.

“We came out flat in the first side out,” said Indians’ coach Chip Watts. “Our kids responded well. We knew we had to chip at it a little bit at a time, and we wouldn’t get it all back in one inning. Our kids stayed with the course and with the game plan.”
