Todd Church fans 10 batters in Red Devil's win

February 28, 2012

After winning three baseball games a season ago, Newton-Conover started its season on the diamond with a victory Wednesday.

Behind a 10-strikeout performance from pitcher Todd Church and two RBIs each from Parker Sigmon, Tyler Sawyer and Caleb Jones, the Red Devils came away with an 8-1 win at home against Freedom.

“We hit the ball, caught the ball and pitched well. Good things happened,” said N-C baseball coach Corey Nunley. “We made one error. I don’t know how many hits we had, but when you put runners on and get them around the bases like we did, good things are going to happen.”
