Travis Fetters incredible 5-of-6 night at the plate Friday against Stanly County was an historic night for him. He knocked out two milestones in one game with his first four-hit and five-hit games in his baseball career.

The performance also catapulted him over the .400 mark in hitting. Fetters average went up 64 points, and he leads Statesville with a .432 batting average, nine points above Lance Clanton.

That jumped his batting average quite a bit, Statesville head coach Trey Ramsey said.

He also has a team-high six doubles and is tied for second on the team with Colby Dishmond with 10 RBIs. Sam Laws leads Statesville with 11 RBIs.

In six innings as a relief pitcher, he has allowed only two earned runs on three hits. He pitched three shutout innings June 1 in a 6-5 victory over Mooresville Post 66. That time on the mound included a pair of huge strikeouts to end the eighth and ninth innings.

Fetter is one of the hardest workers and biggest competitors I have ever coached, Ramsey said. He is having a good year.

Post 65, Post 66 coming off long rest

Statesville Post 65 and the Mooresville Post 66 Moors have been idle since Friday. Statesville went into its five days of rest with a 12-5 victory at Stanly County while the Moors went into theirs with a 10-9 loss at home to Concord.

Both teams resume play Thursday with two weeks left in the regular season. Statesville is at home in the first of back-to-back games against Kannapolis.

Kannapolis (10-3, 9-3) is in second place behind Mocksville-Davie (9-5, 6-2) in the Area III Southern Division standings. Statesville Post 65 (5-7, 4-5) is in seventh place.
