Hayden McNabb homered and drove in three runs to lead the Shorecrest baseball team to a win in its Wesco 3A opener at home Friday afternoon, 8-1 over visiting Oak Harbor.
McNabb went 3-for-4 at the plate, doubled twice and hit a two-run home run in the first to open the scoring for the Scots.
Ted Hammond (1-0) earned the win going five innings, giving up one hit, one earned run, striking out 11 and walking only one. He struck out 5 of the first 6 batters he faced and had a dominant fastball, according to coach Alan Bruns.
Hammond also contributed on offense going 1-2, with a two-run homer in the fourth.
"Defensively the team bounced back from a sloppy game on Tuesday and played very well," Bruns said. "Ted was clearly dominant in his first start of the season after sitting out his first start. On the offensive side of the game the team met all of our hitting goals."
Shorecrest had a big fourth inning with four runs and five consecutive two-out hits.
"It was a strong start to league, but Oak Harbor will be hungry for a bounce-back game on Tuesday at their place," Bruns said. "We need to be ready."
