Eure the man!

Tim Eure had a doozy of a pitching debut for Nansemond River Monday afternoon, pitching for his first win of the season and scoring the winning run in the Warriors’ 8-7 defeat of visiting Great Bridge, their first win of the millennium over the Wildcats.

Down by one in the bottom of the seventh, David Mattei smacked a sacrifice fly to score Chris Rice, leaving the bases loaded with Eure on third. Then Josh Harrell hit a grounder to short, and Eure charged in for the victory.

Lakeland wasn’t as lucky, falling 12-2 to visiting Indian River.
