Grand Clam: Hair Homer Sinks Tobs

Updated July 14 2016
EDENTON, N.C.

The Wilson Tobs fell 4-1 to the Edenton Steamers on Thursday night at Historic Hicks Field.

In front of Edenton’s capacity crowd, the Tobs eight hits produced a lonely run.

Wilson took the lead on an Austin Fisher (Santa Clara) RBI groundout that scored Andrew Webster (Barton).

Dillon DeBlieux (LSU-Alexandria) pitched 4.2 innings with four strikeouts and only one hit, but that one hit determined the game.

After DeBlieux hit a batter and walked two to load the bases, Trey Hair blasted a grand slam to centerfield. The high bomb landed just over the centerfield wall at 355 feet.

Wilson was not able to come back from the four-bagger as they faltered down the stretch.

The Tobs stranded 10 runners for the eleventh time this season, six of whom were in scoring position.

Wilson comes back home a game under .500 to face the Wilmington Sharks on Salute the Troops Night. All retired veterans get in free and all active service members receive $3 tickets.

Gates open at 6:00 p.m. with an R.A. Jeffrey’s Live! Band with first pitch at 7:00 p.m.
