Pitching carries Apex by Greater Neuse champion Clayton

When playoffs roll around, records do not matter. What matters now is what you do at this point in time, which determines if you survive and advance, or pack up your equipment away until next February. Apex, despite a sub-.500 regular season record, opted to focus on living in the moment at hand, by playing out-by-out, inning-by-inning. Capitalizing on that focus, the Cougars, out of the Southwestern Wake Athletic Conference, stunned Greater Neuse River Conference champion Clayton, 5-2, Tuesday in then opening round of the 4A baseball playoffs. Clayton saw its season end with a 17-4 record.
