Pulaski County shuts out Patriots, 2-0

Somerset —  

After almost a week layoff, the Pulaski County Maroons returned to the diamond on Thursday afternoon, managing to only notch three hits off of Lincoln County’s Logan Young.
Good thing for the homestanding Maroons that Danny Masten and crew had Aaron Smith on the hill.
Smith matched Young pitch for pitch in a classic pitcher’s duel, and when all was said and done, it was homestanding Pulaski County evening its record to 3-3 on the young season with a 2-0 shutout victory over Lincoln County.
“That’s the kind of performance we expect out there this year from Aaron (Smith) — he has to be our horse out there,” stated a very happy Masten after his club won its second game in a row.
“He’s pitched well in both of his games so far this year,” added the PC coach in talking about Smith’s performances so far this year on the mound. “He pitched well last week over at Corbin, and then today he threw the ball really well again, only allowing Lincoln County the one infield hit over his five innings of work.”
Indeed, Smith was the story on the day for PC, throwing five innings, allowing just one infield single to the Patriots, while fanning nine Lincoln County hitters.
Meanwhile, Lincoln County’s Logan Young threw the ball well enough to win in Thursday afternoon’s affair, allowing only three hits to PC in his six innings on the hill.
However, it was a mistake on an 0-2 pitch that cost Young and the Patriots in this one.
With neither team having a base hit through two and a half innings on Thursday, Pulaski County’s Henry Lorman finally got his club off and going, leading off the home half of the third inning with a solid single off of Young.
