Gastonia won for the 30th time this season in rousing fashion, bashing the Owls 20-7 Thursday night at McNair Field.

Gastonia got 19 hits and scored runs in every inning except two, leading 11-0 after three innings.
Dalton Eisenbath (Mars Hill) went 2-for-4 with three RBI to pace the hitting attack and Babe Thomas (Winthrop) was 2-for-5 with three RBI.
Zach Sightler (Winthrop) improved to 4-2 on the mound with six innings of starting pitching, allowing one run on five hits.
Gastonia hosts Lexington County Friday at Sims Legion Park.
Winners of the CPL West Division first-half championship, Gastonia clinched a postseason berth on July 29. The Petitt Cup playoffs begin Aug. 5 featuring the top eight teams in the league in best-of-three, first-round series with the higher seeds holding home-field advantage.
