Hillcats Open Series With Win Over Dash



Lynchburg, VA- The Hillcats put their foot on the gas from the very beginning in their 7-1 victory over the Winston-Salem Dash. The Dash entered with the league's best record, but the Hillcats scored a run in six of the eight innings with an at-bat. Matt Lipka's three RBIs lead the team.
The Hillcats chipped away at Dash starter Ryan Buch from the start to give Dimasther Delgado a comfortable lead early. Nick Ahmed got the Hillcats' offense started with a walk in the top of the first. He then stole second--his league leading 13th steal--before Tim Smith pulled a double down the right field line to score Ahmed. That would mark the first of six innings the 'Cats would plate a runner.



The winning pitcher was Dimasther Delgado (1-1). His first win of the season came behind six innings of work where he allowed three hits and four walks in addition to four strikeouts. The Semien homer was the only run he allowed. The loss went to Ryan Buch (2-3). He was touched-up for four runs--three earned--on six hits in four innings. Buch also walked two and fanned one.
Game two is set for tomorrow at 6:05 pm.
