WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Freshman Cory Gantz limited Gold to a run on two hits over four innings and Corey Dick homered and drove in five runs as Blue blew past Gold, 10-1, in game one of the Blue-Gold World Series on Friday at Brooks Field.

Gantz (1-0) allowed a leadoff triple to Steven Linkous in the first inning and Luke Dunlap plated him two batters later, but that would be it for Gold as Gantz cruised through four innings. He finished with a walk and three strikeouts.

Gold managed just three hits against Gantz and Blue relievers Matt Maready, Gavin Huffman and William Prince.

Game two of the series is set for 2 p.m. on Oct. 20.
