Sunday was a day almost too good to be true for Roberson baseball.
Chris Narveson pitched his first major league win in three years against the team that drafted him 15 years ago.
Meanwhile, Cameron Maybin’s 10th inning walkoff home run allowed the outfielder to tie his career-high for homers in a season (nine).
And all of this occurred on the same afternoon for two players from the same Western North Carolina high school.
Narveson is a 2000 Rams graduate who threw 2.2 innings of relief in Miami’s 6-4 win at St. Louis. He also bunted in his first RBI since 2011.
Maybin’s solo homer was the difference in Atlanta’s 2-1 home win over Arizona. Maybin has been in MLB for nine years and his 51 RBIs are the most during that time for the 2005 Rams grad. Maybin is an outfielder for the Braves.
The Braves and Marlins begin a three-game series Aug. 31 in Atlanta and played earlier this month at Turner Field.
