The Caldwell County Post 29 baseball team took advantage of sloopy fielding and poor pitching in game two of its American Legion Area IV semifinal series. In turn, the 29ers (26-5) blasted the Gaston Braves 11-4 Tuesday night in Belmont, N.C., to take a commanding 2-0 lead in their best of five series. The 29ers can wrap up the series tonight at MS Deal Stadium
in Granite Falls at 7 p.m. Caldwell County, which will host the eight-team state tournament August 1-5, took advantage of six fielding errors and seven walks. Seven of the 29ers' 11 runs reached base by error or walk. Winning pitcher Drew Bolick, a rising junior at Hibriten, and relievers Spencer Greer and former Watauga Pioneer Ethan Greene took care of the rest.
