Disco Turkeys split two road games at CPL clubs to open season

MARTINSVILLE, Va. – After an impressive 6-4 win at the High Point-Thomasville Hi-Toms on Saturday night in their opener, the Carolina Disco Turkeys wound up settling for a split over the Memorial Day Weekend with a loss at the Martinsville Mustangs Monday night.

All in all, it was an impressive start for the new Winston-Salem team that begins its first home stand on Friday night at Truist Stadium. They’ll play all their home games there this summer on dates the Winston-Salem Dash are playing on the road.

The Disco Turkeys (1-1) scored all their runs in the third inning on a bases loaded walk (Hayden Setzer), a sacrifice fly (Christian Ezzell), and Logan Conklin scoring on an error. With the score tied 3-3, the Disco Turkeys struggled from there to shutdown the Mustangs lineup in an eventual 12-3 loss.

On Saturday, it was a completely different story. The Disco Turkeys used a towering 3-run, first-inning home run from first baseman Hayden Setzer to jump ahead early on the Hi-Toms on the way to a season-opening win.

The Disco Turkeys play two more road games early this week, including a re-match at the Hi-Toms on Wednesday night, before playing their first home games this weekend. Advanced single-game tickets to home games at Truist Stadium are $7 and are available at discoturkeys.com/tickets.
