Posted February 22, 2013

— Desmond Cheek (Fr./Asheboro, N.C.) and Pat Hall (Sr./Virginia Beach, Va.) combined on a no-hitter in a 20-0 victory over Virginia University of Lynchburg in a baseball doubleheader at Buffaloe Road Park on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013. In the first game, the Falcons defeated the Dragons 11-1 behind the arms of Clarence Ganus (Sr./Whiteville, N.C.) and Jeremy Wilkins (Sr./Smithfield, N.C.) as they combined on a three-hitter.

“The pitching was great in both games,” said St. Aug Head Coach Charles Whitaker, whose Falcons visit Mount Olive College, the nation’s top-ranked Division II team, in a doubleheader Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2013 at 2:30 p.m.

Both Cheek and Hall combined for nine strikeouts and two walks with Cheek getting the victory. Ganus was the winning pitcher in the first game after a four-inning outing.

The Falcons (7-5 overall) delivered on offense with 24 hits combined in two games including 16 in the second victory. Darryl Washington-Hardy (Jr./River Grove, Ill.) led the Falcons with five RBIs on two hits including a two-run triple. Calvin Butcher (Jr./New Castle, Del.) added three RBIs on while Bobby Delly (Fr./Sumter, S.C.) and Wilkins each added two RBIs. Delly hit a double to centerfield in the first inning.

The foursome of Daveed Todd (Sr./Chicago, Ill.), Sterling James (So./New Castle, Del.), Jordan Wright (Fr./Hampton, Va.) and Carey Cheek (Fr./Baltimore, Md.) each added one RBI. Cheek also scored three runs along with Ricky Martin (Jr./Raleigh, N.C.). The Falcons blew the game open in the second inning with 13 runs on nine hits.

In the first game, Martin and Hall both knocked in two runs while William Thomas (Fr./Yorktown, Va.), Darien Hardaway (Sr./Atlanta, Ga.), Jason Baytop (Fr./Manchester, Md.) and Chris Rogers (Sr./Chicago, Ill.) each drove in a run.
