EDENTON — The Wilson Tobs yielded eight runs in the first inning and, throughout, Tobs pitchers struggled to retire former Hunt High standout Bryson Worrell in a 10-6 Coastal Plain League summer collegiate baseball loss to North Division rival Edenton on Saturday night,

Wilson, coming off a 13-12 loss in 11 innings to Fayetteville on Friday night, saw its North Division lead dwindle to one game against first-half winner Peninsula. The Tobs stand 7-2 in second-half play and 17-16 overall. Edenton emerged 4-6 and 16-20, respectively.

Left fielder Worrell, coming off his freshman season at East Carolina, triggered the Steamers’ 11-hit offense with a 4-for-5 showing that included a double.

Worrell capped Edenton’s eight-run first with a three-run double and added a run-scoring single in the seventh that scored right fielder Troy Maslowski, a rising junior at Barton College.

Maslowski, a recent addition to the Edenton roster, also belted a solo home run in the fifth inning.

For the Tobs, Jack Duffy rapped three hits in five trips and all-star center fielder Brenton Doyle added two hits in four trips.

Doyle slapped a two-run double in the third. In the same inning, Ben Faso singled in a run.

Duffy ended Wilson’s scoring with a two-run homer in the sixth.

Starting Tobs left-handed pitcher David Harrison took the loss, his third without a win. Harrison lasted only two innings.

Collin Storms, the third of five Edenton pitchers, earned the win with a four-inning stint.
