West Forsyth jumped all over the Demons of R.J. Reynolds early and often in their Junior Varsity game last week.  By the end of the second inning, the Demons already were trailing by six runs.  When the dust cleared, the Titans walked away with a dominating 13-2 victory.

In the top of the first inning, the Titans were able to get off to a good start by scoring a run on a single by designated hitter Brandan Cuthrell.  The Demons escaped any further damage in the inning and took the plate down one.

After the Demons had one man on base with only one out, they were doubled up on a hit and run, enabling West Forsyth to get out of the inning.

In the top of the second, the flood gates began to open up as West Forsyth began to pile on the runs. With the Reynolds pitcher having control issues, he quickly loaded the bases with only one out.  Titan right fielder Ethan Campbell’s base hit gave them another run to make the score 2-0.

Next up to bat was Cordin Spignor, who hit a three run double and cleared the bases, making the score 5-0.

The double by Spignor prompted a pitching change by the Demons. The next pitcher did not fare much better as he immediately surrendered another run.  After the top of the second inning, the Demons were already down 6-0.

In the bottom of the second, Reynolds looked to be on the road to making the game interesting as they were able to load the bases themselves with only one out.  Unfortunately for the Demons, they did not capitalize on their opportunity and left the inning still scoreless.

The third inning was more of the same for the West Forsyth batters.  The Titans scored five more runs in the inning, giving them an 11-0 advantage after the top of the third. The Demons could not crack the scoreboard in the bottom of the frame and still trailed by 11 runs.

The Demons finally got on the board in the bottom of the fourth inning after loading the bases.  They scored one more before the end of the fourth to make the score 11-2 after four innings.  The fifth inning was uneventful for both teams as neither side scored any runs.

The top of the sixth meant more scoring for the Titans.  After a wild pitch from Reynolds, West Forsyth put another run on the board. Following a sacrifice fly, the Titans ended their scoring for the night, making the score 13-2. The Demons could not put any runs on the board in the bottom of the sixth inning, causing the game to become a final as they were down by more than 10 runs.
