The Tourists did not put together the most sold night on Wednesday but they came away with an energetic extra-inning win over Hickory. It was a win that was reminiscent of April when Asheville could do no wrong and would battle back with a regular resiliency. Darin Holcomb, who had committed an uncharacteristic three errors in the ball game, hit a double in the bottom of the tenth inning for the win. Holcomb went from Colonel Klink to Holcomb’s Hero in a blink of an eye…. The Sitel Call of the game can be heard here…
He has been as consistant as they get
The saying is you only have as much momentum as your next day’s starting pitcher and the Tourists will throw Bruce Billings (4-5, 4.20 ERA) will make his 15th start of the season and his second against Hickory. Asheville is looking for consecutive wins for the first time since the beginning of the month and Billings has been solid for th eTOurists this season. Bruce pitched well in his last start but the defense faltered in a five inning performance from Billings.
