Scoring more than 10 runs a game has become the norm for Wayne Country Day this season.

Heading into their game against Southeastern Homeschool on Friday, the Chargers had scored at least 10 runs four times.

And against Southeastern, the Chargers’ bats remained hot as they defeated Southeastern 14-1 in five innings.

“These guys are playing great, they’re very talented and they’re a fun group to be around,” Wayne Country Day head coach Adam Pate said.

Already leading 1-0 in the bottom of the first inning, Drew Spencer hit a three-run home run that put Wayne Country Day ahead 4-0.

Not long after in the second inning, Garrett Moffett connected on a grand slam, which pushed Wayne County out in front 9-0

Wayne Country Day stretched its lead to 13-0 in the third inning on a two-run homer from Gavin Johnson.

“We had a lot of good at-bats and that results in guys getting on base, so overall I was very pleased,” Pate said.

Moffett went 2-3 from the plate with a grand slam and five RBIs, while Spencer finished the game 2-3 with a home run and three RBIs. Johnson was 1-1 with a home run and two RBIs.

Mason Moffett and Braeden Collins each had one RBI.

Everett Johnson and Tanner Willman combined to pitch five innings, give up zero earned runs and throw seven strikeouts.

“I thought our pitching was really good, and offensively, we did a lot of things better than we had been doing,” Pate said.

Wayne County (6-1 overall) puts its three-game win streak on the line at home against The Burlington School (7-1-1) on Monday.
