Christopher Comito led the pitching staff with six strong innings of two-run ball where he allowed three hits, two walks and struck out five batters. The teenage over-slot draft pick from 2015 struggled in early starts with Kannapolis, but he’s been improving against the challenge with each start. Drew Hasler got the hold with one perfect inning and Taylore Cherry got the save with two perfect innings and one strikeout.
On offense Grant Massey was 2-4 with a run scored and the team’s lone extra base hit, a double. Danny Mendick was 1-3 with an RBI and a walk, Cody Daily was 1-3 with a run scored and recently-signed Chicago area native Kyle Ruchim was 0-2 with the third RBI.
