Sunday’s Game

Stanly County 4

Kannapolis 2


On the same day that Carlos Rodon threw a complete game victory for N.C. State in the 2013 NCAA College World Series, Stanly County Post 76 fans were treated to a similar performance by Cody McKenzie in a 4-2 win over Kannapolis to open conference play this season.

McKenzie was perfect through 6.1 innings, retiring the first 19 batters in a row before a hard line drive hit off of him and his throw to first was not in time.

Stanly’s starting pitcher also helped his own cause out with a two-RBI single in a four-run third inning.

Clay Fesperman was 3-for-4 for Stanly with a double and a run score, as well as picking up the save.
